SIGNBANK Report ;-)

When Anny found out that SignBank didn't open in Mac OS 9, I  
contacted our SignBank programmer, Todd Duell, and he is coming this  
Tuesday afternoon to my office to work on improving SignBank...Then,  
I can re-upload SignBank once again, for those who want to download  
it, plus I can re-create a new CD for Nana and others, and also  
update the manuals. Todd will be doing more than just fixing that one  
problem...Todd will also be updating SignBank to work with FileMaker  
Pro 7.0 and 8.0, which is the most up-to-date version used around the SignBank will become a better program....When we are done,  
it will still be free for those who download (and for the  
Philippines ;-) It will not require owning FileMaker or any other  
program. Nana - Your CD was never sent because I realized there were  
some bugs...

So for the next 2 weeks at least, the SignBank Lessons are on hold,  
and I will try to focus on SignText Lessons, which is better for all  
of us anyway...

What is the difference between SignPuddle, SignBank, and SignText?

SignPuddle...Create signs online, add them to a dictionary, search  
the dictionary, send email using glosses

SignBank...Create, Print, Search and Publish Multi-Lingual Sign  
Language Databases...SignBank can be used to print thick a websters dictionary...easily and  
automatically, once the database is filled with signs...

SignText...Create Sign Sentences and Sign Documents online or  
offline, send email, no glosses involved!

Both SignText and SignWriter are ways to create documents...

OK. Have a great Saturday everyone!
