I for one would be very interested in a nicely scanned book with good
descriptions of signs. I'm deaf-blind, but I was blind before becoming
deaf. In fact, I was born blind. I've been trying to learn ASL for years
so as to have better contacts with people in the deaf community. But I
just can't remember the signs. Good descriptions would help. But the book
must have an excellent rating and no missing pages.
