That website is really nice, Stefan.  Very smooth, easy to read - the video comes through very good.   And the Signwriting editor is cool:

Needs a word for "war prisoner": Kriegsgefangener
and "commander": 



Hi Bill...
Thanks for mentioning the SignWriting Editor software that is being developed by Stefan's team at the University of Hamburg.

I clicked on the link you provided above but it did not work for me, so I went to their site and found this link:
The number 3 was needed at the end of the link.. or perhaps you were on another page? Because I did not see the word "war prisoner" so I am not sure where you

But you are right - this is a cool new program that will be very useful for Stefan and all teachers who use SignWriting - I started to play with it, and just typed some English words and found the signs from ASL in the was a welcome surprise...

Here is a screen capture of my attempt to write "Hello Stefan, I....." - see attached screen capture - very easy to use software...

I understand that some of the team members who are developing this software are on the SignWriting List? Welcome to you all, and a big THANK YOU!

 Val ;-)

Hi Valerie and friends,


thank you so much for your kind attention. ... I have had a nice birthday.


Right now there are so many things I have to accomplish ... I have had a nice birthday.


At school I am working with a new group of students 3rd grade.  A lot of work to prepare all the materials that will allow them to improve articulation and literacy. Of course I use my SpeechWriting – system (Mundbildschrift)  and GebaerdenSchrift (SignWriting) and thanks to our new SignWriting – Programm and a growing SignPuddle Dictionary we can write wonderful documents.


If somebody is interested feel free to visit our website




What does "delegs" stand for?
"delegs" is a German acronym which stands for "learn German assisted by SignWriting". "" is the German portal for deaf people who want to improve their German language skills (not only) to boost their careers. provides tools to create and exchange educational material based on SignWriting.



All the best



Val ;-)
