Dear SW List Members!
Last night, Adam and I were searching in YouTube for SignWriting
videos, and found Adam's video "Why SignWriting" on YouTube translated
Then we found other wonderful videos of people discussing the use of
SignWriting for Deaf education in Mexico, with a new web site in
Spanish from Mexico:
They have started their own Mexican Sign Language Dictionary online
using Steve's SignWriting Image Server (SWIS) and offer the textbook
from Spain, SignoEscritura, by Steve and Dianne Parkhurst, for
download...just like we do on our SignWriting site...
And some of the Deaf people from Mexico on YouTube posted videos in
response ...some thought it was good to write Mexican Sign Language
and others were against the idea, but certainly this new
SignoEscritura site is good for starting the discussion!
I had always assumed that in Mexico they would call it SenaEscritura,
because the term Signos is used in Spain but not in Central and South
America, but maybe the name SignoEscritura will stick anyway, because
it is like a unique name...who knows!?
Anyway, I invited the web designer of the new site to join our
SignWriting List and I hope he does...it will be fun to meet people
from Mexico who use SignWriting!
