Hello Charles -
Thank you also for presenting Presentation 10...

Presentation 10
http://www.signwriting.org/symposium/presentation0010.html

I am glad to know that other presentations in the Symposium have inspired you to new thoughts and ideas for the future…

That is exactly what I hope will happen - We will inspire each other to new developments, projects and ideas to share…

Yes, I agree, Google Hangouts is wonderful. We wanted a split screen too - but the technology was not there - maybe in time we can find a way for a split screen on Google Hangouts but as far as we know that feature is not available yet -

Regarding transcripts - it is not possible to have a transcript for captioning in advance of speaking. The transcripts needed for captioning are not a script…it is exactly what was really spoken…so that deaf people or others reading the captions can know what was said, no matter what, even if it was a clearing of your throat, or saying “well”…or pausing and saying “uh” - the transcript has to be timed with the exact minute you say these things so when reading the captions it matches what the voice says on the video…

Thank you so much for the opportunity, I am still going back through my dictionaries the more I think about it and may have some improvements on a universal dictionary.

1) The possibility of a dictionary that has places for every currently catalogued hand shape. I realized in just doing the Brazilian one that the ASL would have more hand shapes in its current catalog so that they would need to be included. 

2) i am so overwhelmed by how much information I was able to get across in the 45 minutes allotted. I will try to be more focused in the future. I have more and more ideas having seen other presentations. 

3) I will try to have a transcript ready the next time so that multilingual translations will be available. 

4) Google Hangouts worked to get my presentation up and running. The more we learn about the technology, the more we can work toward split screen for full interpreter participation.

Hello SignWriting List!

Just catching my breath, after an amazing experience at the SignWriting Symposium.

I feel really lucky to have shared it all with you…

We have already thanked each other, and we know we appreciate each other's efforts …

But what are your opinions about Google Hangouts? Did you enjoy presenting that way?

How would you improve the experience next time?

Let’s share our ideas here on the SignWriting List…

I look forward to reading about your experiences and opinions…

And what can you envision for the future? How often would you like another Symposium?

Val ;-)
