Thanks for telling us this. I did not know that Juliette Dalle was
working with SignWriting. I donated SignWriting materials to Patrice
Dalle at their school in Toulouse, France, back in 1999...you can
read about it on the web in the France section..
Is Juliette related to Patrice? They have the same last name! ;-)
And I am excited to learn of Juliette's teaching, writing by hand,
which is how the Danes and the Deaf people I worked with here in the
US started years ago...it is great because you do not have to worry
about teaching computers to your students but can really focus on
writing SignWriting itself...
Meanwhile I believe Patrice and others in France are working on
computer programs for SignWriting, so it is good to see so many
different ways of working with SignWriting there...smile...
