SignWriting List
August 4, 2010

Hello Charles -
No one is rejected from the List. It is a software glitch. Please give me a chance to communicate with the people at LinguistList.org to solve the problem. Here was the message I posted about it yesterday:

SignWriting List
August 3, 2010

Everyone -
When posting a message to the List, if you receive a message saying "Rejected posting to [log in to unmask]" just ignore it...

We are trying to fix the problem - it is a small problem related to the archiving of list messages...

Your message has not been rejected and it has been posted and accepted!

Very sorry for the inconvenience ;-))

computers are funny sometimes (smile ;-)

Val ;-)

I haven't done anything with it yet, but I don't doubt that it will be something that I will do. The main reason is that it will take a bit of work to do it, but I don't have the time right now for it since I am also working with Val to get a book done.

Well, you may or may not remember back in July 2009 I had made it so that I had "everything" that wasn't in SignWriting would be converted to fingerspelling. I put everything in quotes because there was still some things that I just couldn't get so that it would work right since I was using images. And there was no way that something typed in a comment box could be written in fingerspelling as it is being typed. Then in Nov 2009 I took a large portion of the converting into fingerspelling off because I had just posted about the death of Larry Fleischer, which ended up having a lot of hits and eventually crashing my hosting service because of the heavy load to handle all of those images. I have since been hoping for the time when I could come back to that issue.

I came across some information that said that I could embed fonts on my webpage if it was something that I knew most people wouldn't have on their computer but was important to the website. That brought me to the recollection of the fingerspelling fonts that Michael Everson had created. I downloaded the font and placed it on my website, placed the code to embed the font into the ASL FrostVillage Blog, and now all text is in fingerspelling... even when typing in a text box! The only catch is that IE and mobile phone (including iPhone and iPads) require a font format other than TrueType (Embedded Open Type and Scalable Vector Graphics receptively), so fingerspelling does not show up on them at this time since I only have TrueType.

I am sure you could use other browsers other than IE, but I have been using Firefox the most for my programming so I know that my blog looks best on it. I should warn you that if you aren't used to reading a lot of fingerspelling, don't trying reading people's comments that have not been put in SignWriting. ;-)

> Let me know what you think. And I would like to thank Michael Everson for the work that he had done with the font to make it possible. This just means that we are that much closer to having all of SignWriting being written as text rather than using images. I find this very exciting. SMILE!
