Hi Valerie, 


I would like to discuss your questions within our next meeting coming
Monday. I will answer your questions as soon as possible. 



2. What is the direct link to the software?


Follow this link:



 “How did you compose the full sentence? I got individual signs, but maybe I
just keep typing a sentence in spoken language?”


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.

SignWriting List

October 5, 2011


Hello Stefan and all of the team members at the University of Hamburg!


Oh YES... I am VERY interested in your new software and I am grateful for it
- it is a real gift to the world.


As you know, I plan to tell people about your new software and web site on
our SignWriting web site too...


So can you help me by answering the following 4 questions, which will help
me with the web design? smile...




1. What is the "official name" of your software? Is it?:




or just software?


Imagine if I were talking to someone and I wanted to tell people about it, I
would say...


"You should see this cool new software from is called Delegs
software and it can be used with SignPuddle?" ...


Would that be the correct way to explain it?




2. What is the direct link to the software?


If I direct them to go to: <> 

Deutsch lernen mit GebaerdenSchrift

Learn German with SignWriting


Then what button do they push, to go to the SignWriting Editor software? It
took a little time for me to figure out where to go...




3. I tried this link:


Should I direct them to this link?





4. I see you attached a screen capture of a full sentence ...It looks great!
how did you compose the full sentence? I got individual signs, but maybe I
just keep typing a sentence in spoken language? I will try it!


I have more questions but this is a beginning - smile -


Val ;-)

Hi Valerie and friends,


well – first of all – it is not Stefan`s DelegsPage – smile – I am just a
member of the team  -


The Editor is the heart of the website. A group of very skilled software
programmers is working very hard to improve the Document-Editor more and
more. Now we are lucky to work with this wonderful software online. No extra
installation or download of anything required. Everybody is free and invited
to create his own documents. The idea is to offer bilingual documents so
that the student has a chance to improve literacy. For this reason I prefer
the writing from left to write (!!! – smile) You can make printouts if you
create a PDF document first. Students get the chance to type the German
translation of the signwriting  just beneath every line. Thanks to growing
and growing dictionary (right now more than 15.000 entries)  you can go with
copy and paste and create wonderful material for school. This is what I was
looking for so desperately. If there are people interested in this method I
can offer more information.  

Have a great day.

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": Kommandant





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 ;-)

Subject: AW: Happy Birthday to Stefan!


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 ;-)
