Dear SW List members, and Adam -
I want to thank you all for testing the new idea of video in our email. 
I am sure there will be a day when that will happen. The reason this 
solution, the Video X 30, has potential, is that is does not require 
anyone to purchase anything, so if the correct version of Java is 
installed, apparently it does work for 93 per cent of the computers, at 
least that is what they said...however...I am not so sure it is good 
enough yet...Stephen is right that if it jerks, or is not smooth 
enough, the sign language will not be readable....so let's give it a 
year to see what happens...it seems there is always something new being 
developed in the world of technology...and if the Video X 30 
development team is willing to donate their video X30 server software 
to us, then we will try to make it work for us...smile...maybe with our 
encouragement, they can improve it for sign language users...I bet they 
never focused on that before...smile...

Val ;-)
