Hello Kate from South Africa!
Thank you for this message, and for your hard work, using SignWriting to make an Avatar move...it is impressive work.

I hope List members who know ASL signs will test the Avatar software and give Kate feedback. I will be one of the testers...

So I am unable to access the site at this time...

Maybe your site is just busy? I will try again later.... 

Val ;-)
