could with what's there.


Hello Charles -
I guess you could view the new video clip I posted. Glad to hear that.
SignMaker doesn't have arms yet. I have to put every tiny little line
needed to build a stick figure into the IMWA and I have not done that
yet, so until I do, I guess SignMaker is not usable for the video
transcription...I am sorry about this. I have been working on
re-formatting the current symbols in the IMWA to have transparent
backgrounds etc, and have not gotten to new symbols yet...so I guess we
are stuck if you can't use SignWriter Java or SignWriter DOS. I hope to
resolve this problem as soon as possible, but it may be several

So I guess the video-transcription lessons will have to wait for a
couple of months...as least I have learned a little bit about making
video for the web! And we definitely will start again as soon as
SignMaker has a more complete IMWA...

Val ;-)
