SignWriting List
August 7, 2013

Hello Stefan!
Thank you very much for this feedback. I agree with you. It would be better to write the vocabulary words in lower case letters, unless the Capital Letter is needed for a proper name. In English, we oftentimes capitalize words that are being used as "demonstration" words, and I believe that is why that happened…but you are right that inside a sentence those words would not be capitalized. For Deaf students, this is an important point.

Your feedback is valuable, and feel free to give us other suggestions. Thank you so much for helping us.

Today I am ordering an iPad Mini from the Apple store so I can really look at the App carefully. This means that I will be able to enjoy the Signbook App that was developed for your work in Germany too…I can study both Apps, which will be so much fun...

For those on the SignWriting List who may not realize….There are two Apps for SignWriting in the iTunes App store now:

Signbook App

SignWriting App

The SignBook App was developed in Hamburg, Germany, by Lasse Schneider, and is connected with Delegs and SignPuddle software. I noticed the Signbook App is now supporting more languages. Thank you so much, Lasse, and everyone working on the Signbook project.

Here is a photo of the Signbook App:

Hi Jake,
congrats – you did a great job.
Just a comment ...
Looking at the attached photo of you App I see the written words with a capital letter in the beginning.
From my point of view – teacher of deaf students – it would be helpfull to read the terms as they are supposed to be written...
All best
