Hello Marian, Nana and Everyone!
Happy to meet you through email, Marian. And thanks for this question  
about using SignBank.

SignBank does not work in DOS. It is a program designed for modern  
operating systems. Here are the operating systems it works in:

Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP
Macintosh OS 9 and Macintosh OS X

This means that SignBank is not able to automatically load old  
dictionary files from SignWriter DOS. The two programs are not  

SignBank works with SignPuddle on the web.

We use SignPuddle to create the signs, that are then easily  
transferred into SignBank.

So Nana's SignPuddle dictionary can be used in SignBank, but not the  
SignWriter DOS dictionary...

Do you want to learn how to add SignPuddle signs into SignBank?

Val ;-)
