Can create and manage video files and written annotations for a sign language dictionary. Signs can be indexed according to sign structure, hand configurations, general movement parameters, and non-manual signs so they can be searched for. Signs can also be searched for by written language strings. Written annotations can be added in several different languages. Also other video files for sign language annotations and comments can be added to the entries.

Video, images and text can explain what a sign means and why it was chosen. 

In beta, not yet released, but it is already being used in several projects around the world.

You can also download a demonstration database in ASL.
