SignWriting List
August 11, 2015

Hello Catalina -
Thank you for your posting. And thanks to Charles too, for your comment…Games are a great teaching tool...

I am happy to learn about your project, Catalina… There are several games that use SignWriting for deaf education and sign language education, so I believe SignWriting will be a good adjunct to your project.

Some of the sign languages that have games using SignWriting are French-Swiss Sign Language, Tunisian Sign Language, American Sign Language, and British Sign Language, to name a few. But I do not know of any for Mexican Sign Language…

On a purely technical note, the International SignWriting Alphabet (the ISWA 2010) is not, as you know, pictures or icons, but instead, it is a real writing system, written by hand or by computer…SignWriting is a visually-deigned alphabet - a series of symbols that writes “the pronunciation” of body movement - The ISWA writes any handshape, any facial expression, any arm movement, from any sign language in the world…

I hope more skilled Mexican Sign Language signers will start writing their language…there are under 200 signs written in the Mexican Sign Language SignPuddle dictionary online.

Here are some links that might be of help:

Mexican Sign Language in SignPuddle Online
http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/index.php?ui=5&sgn=65

SignMaker 2015 for Mexico
http://www.signbank.org/signmaker/#?ui=es&dictionary=mfs

I am not sure how your project will work, but if you need more vocabulary written in Mexican Sign Language, then perhaps you know signers who would like to start adding signs to the above programs? They are free...

Games in SignWriting:

Other games are here:

So I look forward to assisting you and your colleagues writing signs and creating games with Mexican Sign Language...

Thanks for contacting us!

Val ;-)
