Hello Everyone!
Pastor Ron Dettloff, from the Deaf Church in Michigan, just sent me  
this link, showing a new Christian video they made, which has a song  
in English, but SignWriting is placed on the video as an ASL  
translation of the English. Those are called "ASL subtitles"...

As you know, when a foreign language translation is on the screen,  
that is called a subtitle. A caption is writing the same language that  
is being spoken, on the screen...

The Deaf Church in Michigan has a whole series of videos with both ASL  
subtitles and captions. I am so impressed with the beautiful work  
Frank is doing there, to create these videos...Thank you Frank and  
Pastor Ron!

Here is a link to the latest Christian video with ASL subtitles...  
Thanks for sharing with us!  Val ;-)

PS. If anyone else has examples of videos with SignWriting captions or  
subtitles, please tell us...
