Hi Amit,

     That great that you have developed and OCR tool for Signwriting 
images to FSW.  Have you tried it at all with hand writing?  There was a 
project a few years back that they had managed to recognize various 
symbols but I don't believe it was ever finished .  OCR recognition 
would be another fast way to input signs if it could work properly.  Do 
you have an easy way for feeding the OCR training data?

Jonathan
