SignWriting List
July 5, 2006

Dear SW List -
People use software differently...How do YOU create your documents?  
Tell us...

For me, it is fastest to write the signs directly in SignText.

I do not translate from English. I do not use English glosses. I do  
not transfer signs from the SignPuddle dictionary into the document.

I re-write each sign directly in SignText, trying to think in visual  
signs, while I create the sentences.

That is faster than taking the time to find signs in the dictionary!

If I need to look at a sign in the dictionary, to check a  
SignSpelling, while I am creating the sentences in SignText, I open a  
second web browser, and have two web browsers open, at the same viewing the dictionary, and the other for creating the  
sentence in SignText (see diagram)...
