Ok I'll try that!!

thanks tfor this change

just a question... what happens if I download the MacOs 9 version... can I
then switch to the MacOsX version if I need to change my computer ??? (mine
is getting old) I wouldn't like to have to restart it from the beginning...
if I'll have to change anyway is it better to start right away with the
MacOsX version.... (in which their is the swiss french version ??)

what do you think??

Let me know

I'm thinking of getting a Mac Mini (Mac Os X.4, ...)... which I could use
with my acutal screen.... or maybe event buy a new laptop...! which I could
use when I teach the different workshops!!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello Anny and Everyone!
I am happy to tell you that we now have a Mac OS 9.2 version of SignBank. We
also have a Mac OS X and a Windows version.

So Anny - If you do not get a Mac OS X computer, you can use SignBank on
your OS 9 computer!

The new SignBank is the same except that it does not require ANY password to
do editing. I asked Todd to dismantle the password, so that people can use
the database without the frustration of not knowing the password...

Plus, the Lessons database is included now, when you download. This means
that it is a larger download than before, so more people will need to get
the CD...but in the long run it is better for people to have the Lessons
Database open while using SignBank, since all the Help files are right there
for you, when you need them...

At the moment, the new versions are only ready for the US version. Want to
try to download it, Anny, to see if the 9.2 version works for you? I can
teach you how to change to French within the US version:

Tell me what happens!
