Question about/for the Deaf :-)

Hi Valerie.

First of all, thank you very much for you interest in helping me. Actually,
as I always say, it is a help for the deaf and not for myself.

Second, sorry for the delay to answer. That has a reason. I was expecting to
define something and then answer to you to tell that the question was
settled. And, certainly, saying what could be done regarding your very good
suggestions. The work is mine, so I decided that after having received so
many suggestions is was time to work by myself and not bother anybody else
with my doubts.

But, I started to feel bad for not getting in contact and the reason because
I was hurring to finish that do not exist anymore. It means that I have more
time to calmly do that now.

So, here I am.

I can tell you, from a SignWriting software perspective, what we

Yes, I already knew it and it is really a very good opportunity to do what
you have said. I will consider it, of course, until the last minute.

Well, of course I know SignBank.  :-)
I am very curious to know what you have in mind.

Of course this requires permission from Dr. Antonio Carlos da Rocha

I already have that permission. Dr. Costa is such a great person and was the
only one that send the software to me to work on a current project. He did
that much before you wrote your message.

What you are saying is very interesting. It is exactly what the area with
which I intend to work is all about. It would be very useful to have your
opinions about it. Not only for me.

Either of these projects would help Deaf people who use SignWriting

> Would you consider either of these projects?

Of course I could consider them. At the appropriate moment I will let you
know everything about it. But until there I would like to say, as an
academic perspective, even if I do not work with them, having your opinions
and the people's ones it is really very good for any kind of work being done
in that area.

Val ;-)
Thank you.
