This talk will discuss the possibilities of using SW as a tool to represent lexical entries in a Peruvian Sign Language Dictionary (Diccionario Anotado de Lengua de Señas Peruana, LSP). Currently, no published LSP dictionary exists; in fact, there is almost no research on LSP, and very few systematically gathered data on the language. We plan to elaborate the first annotated dictionary on LSP (DALSP). The DALSP will have the following characteristics for each lexical entry: (i) A recorded video of the sign in citation form (provided by native speakers), (ii) a gloss in Spanish, (iii) a translation to Spanish, (iv) a morphosyntactic description, (v) a phonological description, (vi) a recorded video with a sample sentence in LSP containing the sign (provided by native speakers), (vii) gloss and translation for the LSP sample sentence, (viii) a SignWriting transcription for the sign and the sample sentence. It will be published online.

Unicode is a widely accepted standard for encoding the various writing systems of the world. Sutton SignWriting is encoded with Formal SignWriting (FSW) which is plain text ASCII and equivalent to UTF-8.

Last year the Unicode Technical Committee discussed SignWriting and the various data representations. Early August 2016, SignWriting will be discussed at UTC # 148, including a new proposal for Unicode 10.

Formal SignWriting is Plain Text. After the Formal SignWriting strings, rich text details can be add to customize the size and color of individual signs and symbols.

Presented by Valerie Sutton with the ever-expanding Wikipedia Team of SignWriters and software developers. This presentation will review the history of the sign language Wikipedias, and then teach viewers how to link to the Wikipedias, how to find articles, and then, how to read them in SignWriting!

SignPuddle 3 is currently under active development. Rather than a monolithic project, SignPuddle 3 is split into two separate, but cooperative, projects: the front end of user interactions and the back end for data manipulation.

The front end is intended for the normal user. It is written in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. With the front end, the user will be able to view and edit information with a modern interface across a variety of platforms such as desktop and mobile. Behind the scenes, the front end will communicate with the back end without the user needing to know the additional details.

The back end manages the data in a series of SQLite databases. It is written in PHP and is based on the Slim Framework v2. The back end uses HTTP methods and JSON data to communicate.
