SignWriting List
June 25, 2005

Dear SW List, and Steve!
THANK YOU, Steve, for this gift. I look forward to testing it and  
working with it later this evening and you will have feedback from me  
tomorrow morning....Sunday. I hope others on the SignWriting List  
will test it too, so the final version will be truly useful...I look  
forward to using SignText!  Val ;-)

Hi List,

I have an updated version of SignText that is ready for download.  It  
uses the latest version of the IMWA.  The interface has been update  
to match the current version of SignMaker.  And the on screen display  
correctly centers the signs in the correct lane by head position.

SignText has many uses. The major advantage of SignText is that it  
can be used offline without an Internet connection.   With SignText,  
you can explore the IMWA, create a list of signs to import into the  
SignPuddle dictionary tools, and write SignWriting text with lanes.

To review verticle writing with lanes, check out SignWriting.org:

Specifically, consider the finished sentence on the fourth page:

Please try the release and provide feedback.

I will be releasing a finished version of SignText next month that  
uses the soon to be released version of the IMWA.  I will update the  
display and add simple editing function for the resulting text.
