SignWriting List
February 8, 2006

Dear SignWriting List!
James Short, one of our Board Members, is a captioning expert. He  
started a new web site called Harkle, that helps people search for  
videos that have captions on them:
Find Captioned Videos on the Web

Steve Slevinski programmed the search engine that James is using on

If you go to and search for Deaf, you will find  
some of our

Today James and I worked on captioning the video Goldilocks and the  
Three Bears, signed in ASL by Darline Clark Gunsauls, in it will be an ASL video captioned in written ASL.

In a few weeks I hope we will have the complete video captioned, but  
right now I can post small clips of it, and I might do that to show  
the TeachASL List the writing of classifiers and so forth...

Once I post a few messages to the TeachASL List regarding writing  
classifiers, I hope that other ASL signers who know SignWriting will  
give assistance to anyone on the TeachASL List who seems  
interested...because I am not a teacher of ASL myself...

Smile...I am grateful for everyone's team work...Couldn't do without  

Val ;-)
