Hi Val and everyone,
 
Yes, I’m aware that Yair Rand has developed a way to keyboard SW. Two
weeks ago, I
did try to use it, but I did not find where to click to open ASL Wikipedia
or
where to get an ASL Wikipedia screen. I only got a lot of different
information to
read in English. And I did not read those texts.
 
Best regards,
 
André
