By the way carp, if you think a sophisticated SL conversation can't be carried on one-handed, you've never been out shopping with deaf people . They've got it sorted - it might not be Shakespeare, but it works fine the same way having a conversation at a football match works - the 'listener' gets the whole conversation even with some parts of the traditional gestures missing, because they understand the language and know what to expect, my deaf friends tell me. I think I read somewhere about a phone add-on being developed that put a braille pad on its back. The problem with voice activation on a touchscreen phone is that you'd need help from a sighted person setting it up first.
