I can tell you, from a SignWriting software perspective, what we  
could use, if you wanted to tackle such large projects:

Work on...

1. completing SignWriter Tiger so it is a standalone is  
so close and it would be a shame not to finish SignWriter Tiger, and  
the sources are there for you on SourceForge

SignWriter Tiger


2. Updating SW Edit program from Brazil, to work in coordination with  
SignBank (a program that I own and manage)...

Of course this requires permission from Dr. Antonio Carlos da Rocha  
Costa and the programmer that designed SW Edit, but if you get this  
permission, I will be happy to work with you on my end to give you  
the needed data information to coordinate with SignBank...


There are also some features in SW Edit I do not understand and I  
feel they need to be improved...for this reason I never used SW Edit  
personally, but I would love to develop it further, with permission,  
to use it more...

Either of these projects would help Deaf people who use SignWriting  
around the world, and the software is standalone software that does  
not require the the internet issues will not be a  
problem for those Deaf without the internet...

Would you consider either of these projects?
