Hello Gerard and Everyone -
Thank you this information. The SiSi (Say It Sign It) program
mentioned above sounds interesting...I am happy to know about it!
Regarding SignWriting....it has been used for some avatar programs.
One was presented in Lisbon in 2004:
Sign Language Processing Workshop, Lisbon, May 30, 2004
The paper (from Greece) is entitled: "Synthesis of Virtual Reality
Animations from SWML using MPEG-4 Body Animation Parameters"
by Maria Papadogiorgaki, Nikos Grammalidis, Nikos Sarris and Michael

Have a wonderful weekend!
