Sutton Movement Writing & Shorthand is a way to read & write all body movement. It is a script with 5 parts: DanceWriting, SignWriting, MimeWriting, SportsWriting & MovementWriting. DanceWriting was invented by Valerie Sutton in 1972 followed by SignWriting in Denmark in 1974. The SignWriter Newspaper written in American Sign Language (ASL) was published 1981-1984. The SignWriter Computer Program, a sign language processor for typing SignWriting, began in 1986 by Richard Gleaves. The Deaf Action Committee for SignWriting (DAC), a team of Deaf ASL signers, was founded by Lucinda O'Grady in 1988. The DAC influenced the development of SignWriting, now used to write over 40 sign languages around the world. In 2004, software developer Stephen E Slevinski Jr began a collaboration with Valerie Sutton to develop web-based software and font encoding for the SignWriting Script. The collaboration continues in 2018. Slevinski developed SignPuddle software and the SignWriting TrueType Fonts, establishing the Sutton SignWriting Software Standard.
