Dr. Bill's "Fingerspelling CD" is now included on the "Superdisk" (DVD)
A while back an ASL student emailed me and asked if I'd put the asl.ms receptive fingerspelling tool on a disk because she had a slow connection and she also wanted to be able to practice when she was away from an internet connection. So I started putting a disk together and thought, "What the heck, I might as well include everything I've got on fingerspelling." I didn't realize how much stuff I had until I gathered it all in the same place.
So, if you like the fingerspelling testing page at "asl.ms" -- you will probably love my Fingerspelling disk. Since bandwidth isn't an issue when using the disk--the images of my hand are 400 pixels by 400 pixels, (almost twice as big as the images on the asl.ms site).
I have added the "Fingerseek" disk (the word search puzzles that use fingerspelling font) to my "Superdisk" which is available over at Lifeprint.com. Click here for more info: Superdisk ►
An ASL student writes:Dear Dr. Bill,Would you mind sharing briefly what is included on the fingerspelling disk?Thanks I appreciate it!!
Dear ASL Hero,
ingerspelling CDSuperdisk (DVD) contains the various ASL resource materials I have developed over the years. Here is a list of the main links on the fingerspelling area of the disk:
► About Fingerspelling (discussion pages)
► Fingerspelled Alphabet
► ABC Slider Tool
► Test my receptive fingerspelling skills (This is based on the ASL.ms website)
► How do you spell ____ ?
► Practice quizzes
► Spelling quizzes
► Animated Spelling quizzes
► Fingerseeks (word search)
► Practice sheet
► Fingerspelling Font
Plus a lot more. (I kid you not, there are over 10,000 files on that disk, true, many of them are jpegs and gifs but still, that is a lot of content gathered from over 20 years of teaching ASL).
Since the disk is based on my web sites so if ASL.ms works in your internet browser -- the files also work if you put them on your local hard drive (and give them permission to run). Quite a few people have emailed me that they have done this.
-- Dr. Bill
