SWift Editor

New SignWriting
Editor from Italy
For Use on Firefox
SWift SignWriting Editor

The SWift Editor is presenting new ideas on software development and the use of SignWriting symbols. It was presented at the SignWriting Symposium 2014, entitled: "SWift, a user-centered digital editor for SignWriting within the SWORD project."

The SWift Editor is designed by software developers Fabrizio Borgia and Dr. Maria de Marsico, based on research analysis by Dr. Claudia Bianchini. Dr. Bianchini analyzed how signwriters in Italy wrote SignWriting and provided software developers with information through the SWORD Project. The result of this work is called the SWift Editor. "SWift" stands for "SignWriting improved fast transcriber".

The SWift Editor is user friendly and works well in Firefox on the Mac. Point your mouse towards a part of the body to find the symbols needed to write a document.
