SignWriting List
April 17, 2012

I think Steve's new searching features are really wonderful, and I hope you all will try them…

I have updated the links to SignPuddle 2.0 throughout our web pages - I hope I found them all - there were over 1000 links updated from SignPuddle 1.5 to 2.0, using DreamWeaver's auto Find and Replace system….in our SignBank and SignWriting sites... 

And I have started the job of updating the User Interfaces in other languages, to include a translation of some of the new terminology needed on some of the new pages Steve has now included…besides the English-ASL User Interface, the Portuguese UI for Brazil and Portugal has been updated the best I could - if something is not well-translated, just tell me and I can change it -

I started working on the Spanish User Interface but that is not complete yet - so over the next few weeks I will try to update each User Interface - we have German, Polish, Czech, Esperanto, Norwegian, French and Blind icons still to go….smile

I think the new Search Features should be explained with some videos and hopefully we can create some educational videos on how to use the new features -

Keep asking questions -

Val ;-)

The total number of signs found in a puddle is the number of "Sign Occurrences", or how many signs occurred anywhere in the puddle.  From all of the signs that occurred, the number of unique signs disregards any duplicates to calculate the number of "Unique Signs". For signs to be considered the same, they must be exactly the same, except for lane.  Signs that are approximately the same are each counted as unique even though the difference in spelling may be meaningless.
