Hi SignWriting List, and Steve,

Thank you, Steve, for posting this progress report on the development of fonts that include the creation of vertical column images in SVG and PNG - laying the foundation for future software development - thank you for your vision and providing the world with the tools, to make it possible…

And later in the year there will be a SignWriting Cloud? - that sounds very cool… I was asked about that recently and I was so glad to be able to say yes, I believe the SignWriting Cloud is in the plans…

Val ;-)
