Creating a sign language ordered dictionary

But can you print a dictionary from Sign Puddle in one's chosen order without 
constructing it yourself? I order my dictionary down to the individual handshape 
and movement, and that is all by hand.

Subject: AW: I need your help:  DOS Box and SignWriter 4.4

Hi Meryeme, 
I am no software expert whatsoever and it took me a long time to understand the 
tricks how to install the DOS-Box proberly to work together with the SW 4.4  
Program (except for printing) . I wrote a short tutorial –
Perhaps this can support you in your efforts? 
In addition to that. It takes some time to become an expert with this DOS – 
SignWriter 4.4  Program  - you have to download and install the dictionary ... 

As Valerie mentioned before – the SignPuddle software allows an easy way to 
create entries, to create documents, to send emails written in SignWriting, to 
look up terms word – to sign order and to look up signs – symbol –to sign order, 
you can search for frequencies (what are the most often used symbols) .... 

Good luck

hey Valerie and Stefan :-)
   I hope that you all are doing well. I installed the DOSbox but I have problem 
in some DOS commands like 'md \sw' in order to create f directory but I will 
keep trying I think that is because I am using window 7 but I am not sure. and 
by the way I used the ASL SignPuddle Dictionary and I really like but I don't 
wanna use it in my project because I need to enter the sign writing manually 
because I have to verify first if the entered character belong to the list of 
sign-writing language or not and that is what we call it (the lexical analyzer 
:-) and it is the first step to realize a compiler I will let you updated of my
