SignWriting Document
Preservation Project


Michael Paul Sutton

In Loving Memory of Michael Paul Sutton
November 18,1988 - July 21, 2015


 


The SignWriting Document Preservation Project (SWDP)
2008-2014, preserved hundreds of old SignWriting documents that were written from 1974 to 2004. The documents were transcribed (re-written) into new modern web-based software, SignPuddle Online, which provides free web access to a large online archive of SignWriting dictionaries and literature from over 40 sign languages:

Michael Sutton, and his brother Andrew Sutton, both worked as SignWriting Transcriptionists on the project. They were handed old documents written by hand, or written by older software, and then they copied, or transcribed each document one sign at a time, symbol by symbol, into SignPuddle Online. Because of this preservation work, we can now produce printed versions of these old dictionaries and documents, and web visitors can read them online.

For example, a complete 7000 sign dictionary from Spain is now available in SignPuddle Online:

Spanish Sign Language Dictionary from Madrid

Hundreds of documents were preserved 2008-2014. Below are some of the titles that Michael and Andrew transcribed, and there are many more to be listed below:
