 A Special Thanks

 to Bill and Phil Reese


This SignWriting CD was made possible by Bill Reese and his son, Philip, who captured nine SignWriting-related web sites, including thousands of web pages and individual files. A huge job!

Because of Bill and Phil's hard work, we can now access the SignWriting sites without an internet connection. How? Keep the CD in your CD tray as you work. An icon for the CD will always be on your computer's desktop. Whenever you need to access a SignWriting web site, open the CD instead of going up on the web. This can save you internet fees, and it doesn't tie up your phone line!

Many thanks, Bill and Phil, for preserving these nine web sites. Your gift will be used daily, in 27 countries!

Hi all! We hope you enjoy our new SignWriting 2002 CD...

I became involved with SignWriting through osmosis, or so it seems. I really can't recall how I became aware of it but over the last couple of years I've become more and more involved. It's intriguing to me to watch the many people from around the world communicate on the SignWriting List, working through this process of enabling a written form of a language. I'm glad to be able to use my skills and abilities to help Valerie Sutton, SignWriting inventor extraordinaire, capture these moments in SignWriting history.

Since starting to become deaf at age 3, sign language seems to have been destined for me. I am able to speechread and "speak with my hands" to my loved ones with this language. "Whatever Works" guides me in what I do and as Vice-President of the Suncoast chapter of the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA), sign language is a major tool with which I help build the tomorrows. SignWriting holds the promise of becoming for many an important tool in shaping their, tomorrows and I hope this CD helps make this happen.
