Thank you, Steve, for the great new FingerSpeller Feature in SignPuddle Online…

With FingerSpeller, you can type spoken language words, and the equivalent fingerspelling symbols will appear written vertically or horizontally in SignWriting. You can choose either, and save the SignWriting fingerspelling as a sign in the SignPuddle dictionary. Once the fingerspelled words are saved as signs in the dictionary, the Translate Feature can find them and use the fingerspelling as a part of your translated text.


1. Open a SignPuddle file online, such as a Dictionary or Literature file.

2. Look at the icons on the left of the screen. Click on the Icon for FingerSpeller… see attached…
