Hello Uta!

It was nice to meet with you and talk about your project. I am sure we will be able to discuss quite a bit more here as well. :-)

Hello dear Amit,
I am glad that you came across our website and would like to use the data elsewhere.
I know your project.

You are right, it is much better to work with Unicode instead of SymbolIds. There are many reasons for that, yes.
And that's why our goal is also to move to Unicode (SWU). I can't say when that will be, but we plan to start shortly.

I will write here when the conversion is done and
sign2mint.de
contains SWU.

Kind regards
Uta

Welcome, Uta!
It's great to see the sign2mint project expanding :)

Back in July, I wrote a dataset loader for sign2mint.
Unfortunately, one thing I noticed, is that the way you store(/show) SignWriting on your website is in image form, including symbol IDs, but not actually including SignWriting in FSW or SWU forms.
I think including SignWriting in those formats will make it more usable (copy/paste functionality, search, etc)
For now, I am referencing your Gebärdenschrift as images, but hoping you will add textual forms in the future.

Amit

SignWriting List

Hello Uta Meissner, from the DELEGS and Sign2Mint projects in Germany!

And hello everyone on the SignWriting List.

Welcome, Uta, as a new member of our SW List ;-)

I truly look forward to sharing SignWriting with you and your wonderful team, and also with everyone here on the SignWriting List, at the same time. It is so helpful to share ideas together.

We will definitely have a lively exchange together, just as our beloved Stefan Woehrmann did with all of us, years ago. These exchanges help the system grow.

I send all my gratitude and thanks to the Signwriters of Germany and the world, for your contributions to creating a truly useful writing system for sign languages.

First, I want to make sure, Uta, that you can find your messages on the SignWriting List. You mentioned to me on Gitter, that you did not know where to find your messages…

Did you find this one? Tell us if you can find your messages. There are different settings. I make sure that I always see my own posts...

Dear people interested in signwriting,

I am Uta and I work with signwriting in the project delegs (Deutsch lernen mit Gebärdenschrift -> learning German with signwriting). https://delegs.de/

The project delegs creates the website sign2mint.de, which is a lexicon for MINT. It should contain about 5000 signs by the end of April 2022. In video format and also signwriting.

Our motivation is to be able to quickly find a sign you are looking for in the lexicon. That means, one selects symbols, which contains a signwriting and results with selected symbols are displayed.

Our challenge is to transcribe a sign in such a way that, if possible, all users would choose the same symbols and the sign search would be a success.

I am looking forward to a lively exchange with you :)

Many greetings Uta
