Your email did make it to the list the first time.  I'm afraid it got 
lost in the other conversations at the time.

I can tell you, from our discussion a couple months ago on the list, the 
DELEGS is what Stefan is using with his students in Germany.  It's in 
GebärdenSchrift, Stefan's German Signwriting and incorporates his 
MundbildSchrift, a set of symbols for mouth movement, meant to teach 
deaf children how to pronounce the German gloss associated with the 
signwritten word.

It is horizontal and on this page:
click on the "About delegs" button on the left side and a popup page 
will appear explaining delegs in English.

There's a tutorial on the page - a video which is on YouTube at:!
It's probably in German spoken language.  You can get some information 
from it by watching what is happening in the video.

It's possible to write a sentence in German underneath the gloss, that 
corresponds to the signs.
