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 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 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

Val ;-)
