> I would also suggest Dr. Antonio Carlos da Rocha Costa, Professor of

> SignWriting is in Brazil today. He contacted me in 1996, after finding
> SignWriting on the internet, and came to visit me here in my home in 1996.
> Dr. Rocha Costa was instrumental in spreading SignWriting in Brazil because
> his computer sciences students developed software related to writing sign
> languages, and he himself was the original developer of SWML and the SWEdit
> Program, which was and is used widely in Brazil and also influential in the
> world of software. Antonio Carlos was the advisor to Dr. Marianne Stumpf’s
> dissertation in Deaf Education research, which through Dr. Stumpf, spread
> SignWriting in the Deaf Community in Brazil. The SignWriting Symposium,
> with its 16 presenters from Brazil, is a testament to Dr. Rocha Costa’s
> work…I hope he can be of help to your computer science work, Fabrizio and
> Maria...
