Dear SW List members!
I have received several emails from different people asking for more
handshapes from Malaysia and others have written about changes to
finger circles and other movement symbols!
Thank you everyone for the input and it is all valuable ;-))
Here is what is happening:
The ISWA 1.0 will include:
1. New Handshapes
2. All handshapes will have white palms.
3. All white arrowheads will be consistently painted white.
4. A few new facial symbols and movement symbols might possibly be
5. The graphic look of some of the circles might be improved...
6. and DanceWriting symbols, skateboards and axes will be taken out ;-)
But there will be no ID number changes....so all old documents should
be still working and functioning no matter what...
Maybe someday there will be an ISWA 2.0...and that might improve some
of the ID numbers. After the ISWA 1.0 is released and fully
functional in SignPuddle, then we can talk about ISWA 2.0...
Just wanted to explain what is happening!
We are living in the most exciting time...when so many opportunities
are presented to us...so your ideas are always welcome for future
So right now, if there are more handshapes needed, please tell
me...other than new handshapes, I will not be able to do more for now...
Have a splendid day -
