I was thinking of making is possible to reposition the symbols with another
mouse click. We'll see what happens.
I removed the I.gif file. The name of the sign should have been just "I".
Then the sign would have been uploaded and named "I_2". The definition can
be used to specify where the sign is used or it's definition. I hope the
dictionary will become large enough to allow circular definitions of the
The letter i has priority for the sign name I because of spelling. If you
want to translate "I am who I am", you should use "Me am who me am." If you
want to try and upload a new version of "I", it will be named "I_2" so the
translation would need to be "I_2 am who I_2 am".

I played with it a bit - just selecting a few symbols at random and moving

push the back button in a browser and inserting again, but this time with
the picture of the first location shown for reference. H Then, when the new
location is selected, the first location is "erased" and the new location
H I went to the translater afterwards and noticed that if I typed the word
"I" as in "I am who I am", the translator doesn't give me the word "I", it
gives me the letter "i". H I tried adding a sign to the dictionary which is
the same as "me". H It showed up as "I.gif" in the dictionary. H I also was
unsure what the ASL Definition was asking for and just typed the word "I".
hë licking on "I.gif" in the H dictionary didn't show the file I had uploaded.

It is not built for speed, but it works. H You can try it if you like:
Here's some simple directions.
1) Select a Category and Group from the drop down list.
