Hello Everyone, and Stephen!
I have now tested your "build a sentence" section of your web site, and
it is amazing! I tried the signs for GIRL and ME, adding them on your
Build page, and then pressed the button for BUILD, and the two signs
became one graphic...Very well done! And now I can access this web page
anytime to view the GIRL-ME graphic I created...cool!
Val's GIRL-ME on PUDL Site
One point....this may not be important to your site...but if I were
using SignWriter Java to type the phrase GIRL ME, I probably would put
a slight pause between the two signs...that is equivalent to a comma in
English, but we don't write a comma, we write a special symbol that
represents a Pause...and those symbols are a part of the
typing-experience, when using SignWriter Java or SignWriter DOS...(see
attached diagram)...the Punctuation symbols are located on the Z Key on
the SignWriter sign keyboard...
But maybe adding punctuation symbols becomes too much for your
Building-An-ASL-Sentence feature on PUDL?...one way to do it would be
to add the punctuation symbols as dictionary entries, so the person
could choose the pause, if they wanted it...just a thought... No matter
what, the Build section is great...Val ;-)
