SignWriting List
March 5, 2013

Hello Edi!
Thank you for posting this message, and thank you for the attached PDF file, which is really great …I like the opening page, with the design of SignWriting mixed in with the artwork… I hope to create a section on the SignWriting Site for Slovenia and I will include that art work, your newsletter and other information about your work...

To answer your question below…

1. SignWriter Studio….Thank you for opening SignWriter Studio 1.0 ( … It is a new program developed by Jonathan Duncan. We appreciate your feedback. I will tell Jonathan what you said below…that you need Slovenian Sign Language to be included, and you need the Document module - When SignWriter Studio is further developed, we will inform the List. 

Meanwhile, let's use SignPuddle Online…I am impressed with your many dictionary entries in SignPuddle (

2. In SignPuddle, I will create a Literature and Encyclopedia Puddle for you. I also need to create a directory for Slovenia so you can go to all your files on SignPuddle in one web area…

3. You ask if you can insert pictures inside a SignText document created with SignPuddle? It can be done, in one way, but I need to prepare some instructions for you, and to explain how you can coordinate with other software - I will do that now in a separate document and then post it to the List - so look for my email on instruction for document creation - I will also create  your new Literature puddle etc...

So I will write again… Thank you for your patience -

Val ;-)
