Hi Steve, 

 

this sounds great. 

 

For the "ss" and the "sch", are these always changed?  If so, I can support
these as well. 

 

I am not sure that I understand your question. 

 

The German spelling is quite complicated, especially with regard to the use
of the letters "ss" or "". Some words are spelled with "ss", others with
""
So for our finger alphabet we need both. There are no words beginning with
ߔ oder ss  ...

 

 

The SCH can happen as sch in the middle or at the end of a word. This
five-hand sign to indicate SCH is just a way to avoid three different
signs ( S + C + H) 

 

If this is what you asked me  I hope you understand. If not  - do not
hesitate to ask again. 

 

Thank you so much for all what you are doing! 

 

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I should be able to handle , ,  and the .  A slight change to support
unicode will be needed. 

For the "ss" and the "sch", are these always changed?  If so, I can support
these as well.

Each fingerspelling alphabet is defined with a substitution list in a
relatively easy to create config file. Currently, this is all or nothing.
If I create a stepped approach, the first step would replace "ss" and "sch"
and maybe other unicode strings.  The second step would replace the rest.
This model should work for other sign languages as well. 

FingerSpeller currently supports the ASL Dicitonary fingerspelling. The
config file is complete and installed.

I used Adam's work for the ASL dictionary.  He labeled his with
"Fingerspelling" in the text.

I will be adding the ASL Bible Dictionary fingerspelling next.  Thanks Nancy
for creating and labeling your entries:

Thanks Stefan for the SignMail.  The SignText Options link included the data
I needed to create this.  The German Sign Language config file is nearly
ready.
Some manual adjustments for center-alignment and the config file is ready.

Charles, I will get to the Libras fingerspelling as well. If you can mark
the entries with special text or send SignMail, I can do the same thing for
Libras.

Thanks everyone for their help,
-Steve
