Signing Illustrated which is on the bookshare site is great.  I used it in 
my sign language class over the winter.

I'm totally blind, and I'm taking a sign language class in the fall.  Once 
again I believe bookshare (and the wonderful volunteers who make it 
possible) will be responsible for giving me much needed additional help 
outside of the classroom.  Every little bit helps especially in a difficult 
subject such as this.  So thank you for the book!

  I have taken sign language classes and also found it frustrating because 
of my vision problem. I had difficulty reading the sign language quickly and 
producing the signs since I had difficulty seeing the exact nature of the 
signs to copy. Like you I am interested in Deaf Culture and wish that I had 
a more effective way to sign. I am glad to know that someone else had the 
same experience as I had. At one time I wanted to teach kids with hearing 
impairments but gave up because signing was difficult for me.

    Hi CIndy
    Thanks again for takig the book on. The book will answer that questions 
and many others. I too have been interested n deaf culture but have never 
learned an effective way to learn to sign. I tried a class but it was full 
imersion and very frustating. Anyways, thanks again for the help. If you 
have any questions, I wstil have the file.
    Take care
