SignWriting List

This is wonderful Charles! And did you know that Professor Fernando Capovilla has included information about Woehrmann's SpeechWriting in two of his books now? I believe Fernando, working with Stefan of course, has specified it to write the sounds of spoken Portuguese on the mouth…

One of the books is this one:

Scroll down on this page. It mentions SpeechWriting in Chapter 6…

And information was to be published in Fernando's new dictionary…I am not sure if the dictionary has been published yet or not…

Fernando - did your new dictionary come out yet?

Success. Thanks. I know that we will have to add many parts of speech to the LIBRAS dictionary in Portuguese so that the many endings of Portuguese conjugations in seven tenses come through. That's something that I want to consult with Portuguese speakers about. Teaching grammar in Portuguese from a sign language which does not separate out conjugations or tenses will always be a challenge.

Hi Valerie, Charles...

Your explanation is perfect Valerie. It is just as easy as you describe.

Charles - if you follow Valeries list you should be able to type documents
using the Libras dictionary .. It is really fun and so easy to do.

All the best

Hi Charles -

1. Click on this link:

2. Then find Novo at the top left and click on that…

3. Then under Lingua there should be a drop down menu - choose LIBRAS

It should work from there -

Unless, Stefan and Jo and Lasse, is there something that I am missing?

It seems to work for me…

Start typing Portuguese and the signs should appear -

Val ;-)
