Hi Valerie,

again and again I am impressed about your ability to clarify and to explain these „ How to...“questions so perfectly.

 

Perhaps you want to add this lesson to the FAQ´s if it is not already there.

 

Have a wonderful day ...Im looking forward to Saturday– big smile

 

Stefan

SignWriting List

February 19, 2014

 

Hello Daniel (and everyone on the SW List)...

 

Ah…I see. If one is not used to being on email lists, I can imagine it must seem odd that you received messages from other List members. That is actually normal for a group list… There are around 200 to 250 members on the SignWriting List now, from around 20 countries. Most members do not post often, but some members post all the time. Everyone is welcome to post messages in any language, and then we use Google Translate or other translate programs to understand all our messages - It is very interesting to learn about the way SignWriting is used around the world.

 

So right now, we are having a public conversation ;-)

 

….and that is good, because the point of the SW List is to share ideas together, to tell others of our SignWriting projects, and to help each other learn how to use SignWriting software and how to write signs…So I am happy to teach you how to use SignMail, because that program may be of interest to others on the SignWriting List too…

 

So here are instructions:

 

HOW TO SEND EMAIL IN SIGNWRITING USING THE SIGNMAIL PROGRAM

 

Let us assume you want to send an email in ASL...

 

1. Go to the ASL Dictionary on SignPuddle:

http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/index.php?ui=1&sgn=4

 

2. On the left side of the screen, click on the Translate Button, which will give you this url:

http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/translate.php?ui=1&sgn=4

 

3. In the Translate text box, type the English gloss for the sentence in ASL you wish to send to the SignWriting List, and push the Translate button.

 

4. A listing of many signs to choose from, will list below the Translate box on the screen…click on the Radio Buttons to choose the signs you want …

 

5. Scroll down and click on the Update Button. Your sentence will appear written in SignWriting.

 

6. Then click on the SignMail button. That takes you to a screen where you can type the TO and FROM email addresses, and then click on the SEND button….

 

I am going to send another email to the SignWriting List now, written in ASL, following these instructions, so look for the next message written in SignWriting…

 

Keep asking questions!

 

Val ;-)

Thanks for getting back to me. I had thought maybe it was a software glitch, since I got a email addressed to you and another teacher from another suscriber. but yes I would love to learn how to use the signmail program.

Daniel.

SignWriting List

February 19, 2014

 

Hello Daniel!

Welcome to the SignWriting List.

 

Gosh, you think the List is bugged…do you mean there might be a virus on the Listserve software from Valencia College in Florida?

 

I surely hope not - What makes you think that?

 

SignMail is a program inside of our SignPuddle software that makes it possible to send email messages to each other in SignWriting. Have you tried the SignMail program? If not, I could show you how here on the List - write again if you are interested...

 

I just tried to send one to the SignWriting List - I am not sure if it worked or not ;-)

 

Val ;-)

Hi this is Daniel. I'm just a suscriber to the signwriting list but I think the email may be bugged.
