Hello Everyone and Kathleen!
Happy to help. Keep asking questions!


1. Connect to the Internet, and open the Firefox web browser.

2. Go to SignText on the web:

3. Make your Firefox window as BIG as possible. Stretch the window so  
it fills your whole computer screen.

4. To see the Symbol Palette, scroll to the far right. The Symbol  
Palette should appear, with the SignBox. You may have to scroll down  
a little too.

5. See the attached diagram. It shows everything on the SignText  
Editor screen...(continued next message)...

1. Symbol Palette
2. SignBox
3. Command Buttons
4. Sentence Column
5. Text Editing Buttons
6. Options for your sentence.
