Liechtenstein’s manual alphabet has been sitting on my disk and waiting for revision and approval for a very long time. So I am glad I finally got the green light to publish it!
Many thanks to Mr. Rüegg and the team of the translation service procom Dolmetsch-Vermittlung for their help in getting this manual alphabet ready for download.
Go here to check it out! And please pass this information on in case you know someone who could use it.
Supplementary material will be out as soon as time allows.
Easter just came and went – it left me with a new little feature for Fingeralphabet.org:
The first set of coloring pictures for children.
Click on a preview to download the full size image. It is A4, so it is pretty large.
I might even do a version of my own if I find the time.
Gebaerdenservice.de in Berlin is planning to organize a kiddie coloring partie with our illustrations and told me about it. This made me think of providing non-easter material, too. So, stay tuned for more.
Last year I was approached by the management of the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe. The year 2013/2014 their organization, and with it their 17 amazing themed museums, will be providing a free service for the Deaf community by offering free sign language (DGS) tours at their locations.
Fingeralphabet.org provided the manual alphabet which is now also printed onto one of this year’s Museum-Tour-Pass.
I have to hold back the information for this part here for the time being.
I hope I can come up with a surprise next month – it might take a bit longer, though.
I added additional accounts for Pinterest, where I have also been amassing my international stamp collection and the (mainly historical) manual alphabets.
In addition to Pinterest, I also added a Tumblr account. I am not there often – yet – but that might change eventually. I have witnessed that it is a great platform to exchange snippets of information and images. So I set this up basically for the coloring images, to have the means for a little gallery of your work. I am hoping for feedback on these new satelites of Fingeralphabet.org. Go have a look!
I added the category coloring pictures in the menu “Share It”.
Most people are not necessarily interested beyond their own national manual alphabet. And that is absolutely understandable.
For the amusement of the rest of you, I started a little series over at Fingeralphabet.org’s Facebook page, where I am showing different signs for the same letters side by side.
You can find the whole collection of sign comparisons here (I am continuously adding to it).
