SignWriting List
January 13, 2012

Hello Dusan and Alan!

Thank you for mentioning SignWriting software, Alan…

Dusan, do you know about SignPuddle Online? It is free software. You can write your own signs in SignWriting and save them in a dictionary file, or you can write your own documents in Slovenian Sign Language, and save them as Literature files…

To get started, go to:

SignPuddle Online
http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle/

and scroll down and click on the Slovenian flag to go to the Slovenian Dictionary file…

Slovenian Dictionary File
http://www.signbank.org/SignPuddle1.5/index.php?ui=1&sgn=74

I see there are 17 entries in there already, so perhaps you are the one who has added the Slovenian signs?

To add more signs, click on SignMaker icon to start writing new signs and adding them to the dictionary -

If you have questions, write here to the List and we are happy to answer them -

It will be wonderful to have a Slovenian SignPuddle with many signs in it!

Val ;-)
