SignPuddle is a way to work with SignWriting on the web.


SignBank is another program, designed to help publish printed  
dictionaries in multiple languages, in SignWriting


SignPuddle is used to create the signs that are then transferred into  
the SignBank program

Once the signs are in SignBank, you can sort dictionaries by Sign- 
Symbol-Sequence and create printed vocabulary lists for your students  

Both programs are excellent but they are different programs, offering  
different features.

If you do not have time for email, then you can access the Lessons on  
the web...

At least we have one page there - ha!

How to Use SignPuddle with SignBank

Someday when you have time to use SignBank, we can talk about a CZJ  
version! Enjoy your exams, Honza!

Thanks for writing...

Val ;-)
