Hi Ingvild and Charles!
First, SignWriter DOS is not past tense - it is not in the past. I am using it right now, and so can anyone. Just download DOSBOX and install it:
Second, software like SignWriter DOS and SignPuddle 1.6, actually has little to do with how you write. You can write the Norwegian mouth movements in any style you choose in SignPuddle 1.6 too - software is not a theory of writing - so there are no limits to your writing styles when it comes to Mouth Movements in either software program...
The only limits to SignWriter DOS usage is that it uses a smaller symbolset (sss1995) and it cannot write down in vertical columns - but other than that there are no limitations on your writing styles no matter which software program you choose -
I think what you really are saying is that you enjoyed writing the old way - and that is fine because you can continue to write the old way!
We are adding a lot of Norwegian signs and documents - have you notice?I am so happy about it!
SignPuddle for Norway
There are close to 3000 signs now in the dictionary and the literature puddle is growing too - we may need to move some of the individual signs from the literature puddle to the dictionary puddle, but we will do that work later - Thank you for all your old SignWriter DOS files, Ingvild! I am happy to build a sign language corpus in SignPuddle Online for all countries -
