SignWriting List
March 12, 2015

Thank you very much, Steve, for this detailed answer. I will inform the person who asked the question…

You have the listing of the alphabet for LIBRAS right now, in SignPuddle:

Two ways to find it:

http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/searchword.php?ui=12&sgn=46&sid=8,65,67,77,80,84,95,104,141,156,198,247,254,256,258,260,264,265,266,276,386,387,388,389,390,441,442,443,444,445,446,447,448,449,665,666,3245,3302,3306&sTrm=%2Aalfabeto&type=any&sTxt=&sSrc=&


or… go to:

Brazilian Sign Language Dictionary
http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/index.php?ui=12&sgn=46

and Search by Words for:

*alfabeto

under Terms…

The entire alphabet is listed for us…This was done by Brazilian writers.

Thank you so much to the writers!

I know you are very busy finishing SignMaker 2015, Steve, for iPhones and iPads and computers, so of course finish that first - but then later if you can help us with the LIBRAS Fingerspeller that will be terrific -

Many thanks -

Val ;-)
