Writers who know the code can PREDICT how to write the word (albeit not entirely successfully in English, given all the exceptions), and readers, even if the meaning of a particular word is not known, can predict how the word probably sounds.

If you know the writing code, you can PREDICT how to write the sign, and when you see the written sign, you have a pretty good notion how to make the sign.  If you already are familiar with the sign, you will recognize it when you see it in its written form.
>> 
>> Deaf children learn to read SW just like hearing children learn to read Romance languages (being that they all rely on human brains.)  Most struggle at first with the phonetic code system (visual or aural) and soon adopt a whole-word approach -- which is what you are doing right now if you are reading this explanation (but not so much this ecksplanashun.)

>>> SignWriting is not a coding system. It is a writing system. It is a way to write body movement. We can write sign languages with the SignWriting Script.
>>> 
>>> So SignWriting is a writing system for a series of languages - sign languages - just like A, B, C and the letters of the Roman alphabet write a series of spoken languages - the spoken languages of Europe, such as French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and English - all use the Roman alphabet symbols to write their unique languages...
>>> 
>>> So the SignWriting symbols are used to write any sign language in the world. The person writing has to know their own sign language, and then they write what they feel and see...
>>> 
>>> So, no, I would not call it a coding system, but then again, I do not know what a dual coding system is ;-)
