SignWriting List
August 3, 2010

Hello Adam -
Thank you for posting this message about your blog in written ASL:

http://frostvillage.com/blog/lang/ase/

What an amazing idea.... To embed the TrueType fonts for typing fingerspelling using SignWriting hand symbols, that are available for download on this web page:

Fingerspelling Fonts by Michael Everson
http://www.signwriting.org/catalog/sw214.html

...so now the visitors who visit your blog in ASL, who do not know SignWriting, can type English on your blog, and the English appears written in Fingerspelling symbols! And the word "loading" is in fingerspelling - ha! That is really cute...see attached screen capture...

For people like me who are slow to reading ASL fingerspelling, this is a great way to learn to read fingerspelling! ;-))
