Hi Bill and friends,


you are right. This is not the official website but more kind of „experimental version“. To create a stand alone Signmaker-Editor will take some more major efforts. So far we create/write and change signs with SignPuddle but use all the signs of the German SignPuddle dictionary to create our own documents with this delegs signwriting-Editor.


It is wonderful to be able now to create new documents with or without translation (subtitle) in order to support deaf students to improve spoken language skills.

Valerie, Stefan, and others,
Somehow I had gotten onto this page:
which seems to be more of an experimental version.

When I double click on a sign, I get an editor with an on screen keyboard and a little composing box above the sign with the sign in it.  It works similar to SignPuddle, in that signs can be edited in the box.  However, I noticed that it has at least one problem - highlighted glyphs change to another glyph during their highlight, then change back to the proper glyph when not highlighted.

Hello Stefan!

This is all so wonderful, and no rush at all. I know you are under deadline right now and are too busy to teach there is plenty of time later. You have already answered some of my questions and it is clear for me now. Thank you for attaching the diagrams below...  Val ;-)

....You are right! Just go ahead and type word by word. Or copy and paste from a word document.


Whenever there are more than one entry for a given term you can look for  alternative signs with the little blue triangles which show up if you move the mouse over the signwriting symbols. (see attached gifs)

Well I understand that we will need to write a short tutorial – smile .  But I can tell you – it is a wonderful program and teachers for deaf and hard of hearing, SL -  interpreters, SL-instructors, signers, parents, medical staff,   will take so much advantage out of this.
