SignPuddle Dictionaries and other SignPuddle features offered on this site, including the SignText Editor Program, are designed and programmed by Stephen Slevinski, stemming from his original web site called PUDL (Pittsburgh United for Deaf Literacy) that was on the web as a separate site from 2003-2004. In August, 2004, the PUDL features became an active part of The SignPuddle Online Dictionary offers new features for SignWriting users, including the ability to write sentences in SignWriting in vertical columns directly on the web, translate from English gloss to SignWriting, create new signs by pointing and clicking on the web, sending email in SignWriting, and visitors can even upload their own signs and place them in the public SignPuddle dictionary.
