I will need a LIBRAS interpreter for my presentation. The sign examples are all from LIBRAS but I am not fluent in the language and mine may be a lively discussion for ordering signs. My Portuguese is passable, but with a lively discussion, anyone on here may really need an interpreter for LIBRAS and Portuguese. 

SignWriting has progressed so far since I first learned it and the fine-tuning of this system for things like alphabetic printed dictionaries is going to be a challenge to anyone. I feel I have principles that can be followed, but others may have their own ideas.

SignWriting List
June 3, 2014

Good morning everyone, and Claudia!
I am delighted you are presenting first, Claudia - You will educate us as to how to do an online Symposium ...

I really mean that…we are new here to online presentations and symposiums…this is our learning year…so your advice is welcome. And so is everyone else’s too -

No worries - do as you wish and I will accommodate whatever you choose do -

I am so looking forward to seeing your presentation, Claudia - you are doing important work -

I have never managed 40 presentations from 12 countries before, with such a wide variety of languages and needs for interpreters - that is another reason that I need your help too - we need to talk about interpreters for more than 12 languages …

So first of all…you are welcome to do what you want regarding your written papers, documents, slides and videos - 

If the deadline of July 7th does not work for you, then ignore the deadline. Call it a guideline. Because I am working alone, creating 40 web pages for people which should serve as a backup for their presentation, I figured I could use two weeks to post everyone’s work before the actual live presentation…but I can also post it after the presentation is over too - and of course that will be fine if that is best for you -

So, we need to talk about interpreters… Do you need a French Sign Language or an Italian Sign Language interpreter? International Sign Language interpreters, although they did an excellent job at the time, were not all understood at our Symposium 2005 in Belgium (I received complaints)…and I am pretty sure, with 12 countries participating that most people will not understand interpreters from other countries…

there are live-captioning tools available on Google Hangouts, but even then I understand the live captions do not get recorded in the YouTube video - so obviously we will still need to caption the videos later after the Symposium is over -

So you are correct that a lot of these documents will be posted on web pages after the Symposium is over - so take your time!

How should interpreters be handled?

Val ;-)

Hello Val,
sorry to be "annoying", but I've some problems to understand why there is a "presentation deadline"
If I present "live", using a PPT support, why do I have to send the ppt 2 weeks before? I can use Hangout with "screen sharing" (or "document sharing putting it in GoogleDrive... I'm used to do this for my work's meetings) and make everyone see the presentation in the same time I speak... and then I can send you the presentation if you want to put it in an archive of the SWS2014....
Sorry but it's the fist time that at conference it is asked to me to have a "last-version" presentation so soon... even when there are interpreters, I just have to give a "almost ready" presentation 1 week ago.

SignWriting List
May 31, 2014

Hello Symposium presenters...

There are two parts to your presentation…

1. The LIVE online discussion on Google Hangouts and YouTube in July. It will be for 20 minutes to 30 minutes with questions from the viewers. So you will have 40 minutes at most to tell people about your work and point them to your web page for more in-depth learning and viewing...

2. Your Web Archive page will include your Abstract, bio, links to videos, PowerPoint slides and documents, that will remain on the web. Your videos can be of any length (they can be long), and your written papers can be as long or as short as you wish…anything to archive your presentation.

The theme of the SignWriting Symposium 2014 is “40 Years of Writing Sign Languages”, since it is exactly 40 years, since SignWriting began in 1974.

PRESENTATIONS
1. Presentations deadline: July 7, 2014
2. Your presentation can be ANY length you choose.
3. There are three Presentation Venues: written papers, slide presentations and video presentations.
a. Written Papers accepted in the following formats:
• .pdf
• .doc
• .docx
• .txt
• .rtf
• .rtfd
b. Slide Presentations accepted in the following programs:
• PowerPoint
• Keynote
• GoAnimate
• Google Docs
• SlideRocket
c. Video Presentations accepted in the following formats:
• .mov
• .avi
• .wmv
• Flash
• WebM
• MPEG-4
4. Software demonstrations through download links can also accompany any of the above three venues.
5. You can present in one, two or all of the above three venues.
You are welcome to send me your above work any time you feel ready…as soon as I receive your work, I will post it on your web page in advance of the Symposium…

I am working on your web pages now, based on your Presentation number. It will probably take me all of June to do a good job with 42 web pages - we have 40 presentation web pages plus 2 introductory web pages and of course the directory of presenters ;-)

Thanks to all of you - Your presentations are very remarkable -

Val ;-)

Hello Valerie,
my presentation is very visual.  May I prepare in advance a movie of screencaptures of manipulations on my desktop.  It would be in Windows wmv file.  If so, does someone know a safe software to do such movie.  I found one, but I hesitate to install free unknown software:
http://www.clubic.com/telecharger-fiche314584-free-screen-to-video.html  (warning: I did NOT try it!!! one user had problems (computer died for unknown reason, others were fine)
 
A dynamic  powerpoint also would be easy.
