    The article describes technical and user-interface issues of transferring the contents and functionality of the CD-ROM version of the Slovenian sing language dictionary to the web. The dictionary of Slovenian sign language consist of video clips showing the demonstra- tion of signs that deaf people use for communication, text description of the words corresponding to the signs and pictures illustrating the same word/sign. A new technical solution—a video sprite—for concatenating subsections of video clips necessary for their smooth display on most available platforms was developed. The contents of the dictionary which were re-edited are combined also with other resources available on the web. Added were also new exercises for learning the sign language.
