Three Deaf ASL signers, Adam Frost, Holly Sharer and Jason Nesmith chat about their opinions and experiences with SignWriting. They express their surprise at the flexibility and open-minded nature of the system. Jason discusses that SignWriting is free and open to use, and the symbols are based on the human body, writing the way the body looks and feels, and therefore writers can write their own sign language as they feel is best. All three have contributed articles written in ASL for the ASL Wikipedia, so some of the discussion focuses on software and how it felt to write and post an article on the web. This video and discussion is a part of Presentation 64 at the SignWriting Symposium 2016. See: http://www.signwriting.org/symposium/...
