I would like to introduce you something I made, using the SignWriting
system, in relation to International Sign and LIS (Italian sign language).

I am not part of any institution and I am not an academic: I was doing that
for my personal interest in learning sign languages, with the hope that,
whatever I am able to do, it could be useful. To ensure reusability I
included the SWU encoding that I obtained using SignMaker 2017 .

My particular dream would be that International Sign could get more
attention and could develop into an actual international language, for deaf
and for hearing people. An international language should be unrelated to
culture (and tradition), and therefore should not be “owned” by any
particular community. In my opinion, IS has the potential to become such a
language, for the benefit of everyone.

My name is Daniele Giacomini and I am 55. For three years, so far, I have
been a special needs teacher for high school. I had the occasion to attend
an introductory course to LIS (Italian sign language), and my need for
making notes lead me to the SignWriting.

Thank you for your attention.
