Greeting Dr Stephen and All :
From my understanding around the project :
1- the SVG is used to draw
signs as for example
This is correct. We are using SVG primarily until the TrueType Font
2- I should do the FSW for each sign and also
define its word in arabic as for example (fig 1) where the
user when enter the FSW or the word in arabic , the sign is
The FSW is the mathematical name of the sign. The SVG image is
created from the FSW.
3- But here i do not
understand how to link among the SVG file (fig2) and the
dictionary file (fig 1) .
thanks in advance
The SVG file is created from the FSW. The open source project the
"SignWriting Icon Server" is able to create the SVG from the FSW.
I just published the first release candidate for the SignWriting
Icon Server. You can grab the source from Github and install your
own, or you can use one of the several existing SignWriting Icon
Servers available online. I would suggest the Wikimedia Labs based
Github source: https://github.com/Slevinski/swis
Wikimedai Labs server: http://swis.wmflabs.org
SignBank Server: http://signbank.org/swis
Specifically, the "glyphogram.php" script is used to create the SVG.
You can call this script directly or learn to use the SignWriting
Thin Viewer for website in general.
