SignWriting List
August 30, 2013

Many blessings to all of us - thank you Charles!

And it is actually Steve Slevinski who is doing the software development to create SignPuddle 3, which will give us better searches. Thank you, Steve!

Once the case sensitivity is fixed in SignPuddle 3, I would guess, that if someone searched for "to love", as you mention below, Charles, that that would list all the signs in the dictionary that have the search word "love", so you should be able to find them I hope ;-))

There are also new searches coming in other software, such as SignWriter Studio, by Jonathan Duncan - I will be testing those later and look forward to having several software programs that coordinate with each other, all using the ISWA 2010.

Thanks to everyone!

Val ;-)

While English has different words indicating tense, in the Latin-based languages, and many others, parts of speech are imbedded in the languages so amou (I love) or amei (I will love) or amasse (I might love) are single words and they all need to be shown under amar (to love).

He hopes to have SignPuddle 3 ready in about a month, and one of the most welcome features will be to search without case sensitivity!!

That does not help in finding words when one is typing ordinary text. So you show up with false negatives when you are trying to use the translator. I don't know if Delegs can work beyond that barrier, and this is a serious flaw.
