    @Slevinski @signwriting_twitter I know that probably this is out of the scope of this chat, but did you, Valerie or Steve, thought or made version of SignWriting for people that are deaf and blind at the same time? Or maybe entirely different script for these people?
    Steve Slevinski
    @Slevinski
    There have been deaf/blind people who have used SignWriting. Legally blind, but able to see at high magnification. Interestingly, they have preferred a black background and a white SignWriting line. This is one of the motivations why SignWriting supports color styling. Integration with CSS makes this possible today, whereas before it required the creation of custom PNG images.
    You can see this option on my demo pages: https://steveslevinski.me/demo/fsw.html
    You can also see this in SignMaker under More >> Preferences with the "Black on White" or the "White on Black". https://signbank.org/signmaker.html

    Hey @itacirgabral, thanks for releasing your packages for the ISWA and SVG. I haven't had time to dig into your code yet, but I really appreciate that it is available on NPM. Later this year, I will be doing some work with SVG and your packages will be a good resource.
