CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS to help Adam Frost with written spoken language transcripts of the entire SW Symposium 2014.

You can watch all four videos on these web pages:

LIVE Streaming of the SignWriting Symposium 2014

or on the SignWriting YouTube Channel:

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

So what do we need?

1. First, write to Adam Frost here on the SignWriting List, or to his email address:

frost at

to find out which presentations on which videos need a written word transcript. 

It is important not to double up if the work has already been done…

2. Once you decide with Adam which presentations you will transcribe, write the word transcription in an email or a text file and send it to Adam, or to the SW List...

3. Then Adam can place the captions based on your transcript.

and we need both Portuguese and English transcripts, and an Arabic transcript of Wafa’s presentation from Tunisia - whatever the language spoken, it needs to be transcribed…

Once we have the Portuguese transcript, we will need to hire our Portuguese interpreter here to translate that into English, unless there is someone here who wishes to volunteer that translation job too? So I am hoping to have captions available in both Portuguese and English for the Brazilian presentations - and also for the Arabic presentation - have captions in both Arabic and English -

We will accept your help -

I am sure you know that we are a non-profit organization. I am a full-time volunteer and our staff are paid way too little - I am going to be focusing on raising funds now so we can keep doing our important work -

Thank you for your help in advance -

Val ;-)
