Hello friends,
Charles, Jonathan, Stefan
 
I am currently developping a dictionnary French-LSQ.
We will be sharing ideas in the future.
I am currently preparing the annexes such that someone not knowing SignWriting can learn to read fast.
 
I expect that several chapters will be reusable...
 
I will post a draft in a few weeks so you can see where I am going.
 
One important idea for a LSQ-French dictionnary is to index al the glosses.
Microsoft Word can sort the glosses in alphabetic order with the page numbers.  So we get a French-LSQ dictionnary with 1h00 effort.
 
Also, with little effort (1 or 2 hours), the whole dictionnary will be exported in Anki electronic flashcards.
 
It will be my pleasure to help people doing so when I will be familiar with the process.
 
If things go the way I want, I will add Stefan Woermann LipWriting (Mundbilder) for each word (I created a 25 characters font that will be available soon).

This is truly an amazing development. I struggled and struggled for my project on SignSpelling to ensure I was capturing nuances. Having a clear tree does help in dictionary development.

Hello,
this is very interesting for dictionnary creation!
Can we export an html  dictionnary sorted based on sign spelling?
 
Does SignWriter studio import SignPuddle sign spelling?
Can sign Puddle import the SignWriter studio spelling?
 
What happens at import or export if a word  has 2 different spellings, one in Sign Puddle and one in SignWriter studio?   More generally, how does SignWriter studio manage if the same signs are imported more than once?

Hi all,
    The Suggest Sign Spelling feature is easy to use but just a few tips just the same.

Open a sign from the Dictionary in the Sign Editor



Click on each of the hand to make sure that they are entered as right or left.  In the Chooser you can see whether it is a right or left hand.  If it isn't right, then correct it in the chooser, you may need to fix the rotation after changing the hand.  Then click add replace to replace the symbol in the sign with the one from the Chooser.  The sign should look exactly the same as before.

Then click on suggestion.  If a symbol's characteristics cannot be determined by the symbol itself or what it can get from the context of the sign, it will ask for clarification.  Click either yes or no as appropriate. 



And the symbols will be added to the Spelling area in the suggested order.



Make any adjustments necessary to the spelling and click Accept to save the changes.

If you don't want the suggestion to take into account all symbols in the sign, drag a box to select the symbols that you do want taken into account.

The suggestion feature does well with simple signs with fewer symbols. 

Please let me know if you find any areas where there can be improvement.

Thanks
