Yes, the Kegls are actively using SignWriting to continue to write Nicaraguan Sign Language literature - I was just in communication with James Shepard-Kegl and others the other day, about software etc…

There are quite a number of documents in SignPuddle for Nicaragua, plus there are around 40 PDFs of literature…on every subject...

I need to document all their documents! Maybe you can help me with this Erika - I need a better system for storing everyone's documents online in a place that everyone can upload to themselves…so they don't have to wait for me to do the web site work - I love that kind of work, so it is no problem and I am happy to do it, exceptpt that I am so slow these days -

Val ;-)
