Steve is right ...delegs is a fantastic tool to teach SignWriting learning by doing. No formal SignWriting cours needed for students!!

Ooops! I made a typo in my comment! I meant to say that in this context the use of Signed German need not undermind the acquisition of DGS (German Sign Language)!

Again, enjoying watching from home!

Just chiming in to say that I've had the pleasure to see in person Stefan's students working with this program and was very impressed with how effective it is.

One nice thing is that Stefan not only asks them to use the program to compare DGS and German, but also to compare DGS with Signed German. In this way, even if students use Signed German as a bridge for understanding German grammar, they can also clearly see how DGS grammar differs from Signed German.

Thus, the use of Signed German in this context need not undermine students' acquisition of Signed German. :)

Thanks Valerie! It's not so much that I want to develop an efficient or QWERTY keyboard, just that I was curious whether Yair started from one of those principles. :)

Like you, I've used differently arranged keyboards in different countries and I imagine it's mostly a matter of developing habits that make typing efficient.

Hi - I'm enjoying the presentation from home. I'm not sure how to ask questions live..;-(((

Would it be possible to get a demonstration on how long it takes to write a sentence with this keypoard without using a dictionary in the background?

Can you write the sentence in ASL   "SignWriting is a wonderful invention."

All best Stefan

Hi all! I'm enjoying the presentation from home. I'm not sure how to ask questions live (and I remember the difficulties caused last year when too many people tried to participate at once), so I thought I'd post questions here, to be answered later at people's convenience.

So, Yair, this is really great. A quick question: in setting up the keyboard, how did you decide where to place different elements on the split board? I'm interested in the physical skill/habits involved in typing. Given that this is a different type of writing system, I'm wondering what research you might have done to come up with a layout that might be physically efficient, or perhaps intuitive for those accustomed to using a qwerty keyboard, or whether there were other kinds of considerations.

Thanks!
