Using Visuals as a Development Tool


FORUM 2003 International Technical Communicators Conference, Milan, 30 June–2 July 2003

Postharvest of the FORUM 2003 Conference Meeting the Cross-Cultural Challenge. Extract: The benefits of using visuals in technical communication are well established. Visuals help to describe a product and to guide the user in handling the product. What is less evident is that visuals can be effective in the development of the product itself. Using visuals – made by professional communicators – at an early stage in development, will improve internal communication within the project team, and result in faster development time. Technical communicators can help not only with the product documentation but also with the product development itself.

Now it is time for pictures, again


Technical Communication Congress COMTEC'97, Paris, October 10–11, 1997

Preceedings of the Technical Communication Congress COMTEC'97. Extract: Human beings are exposed to an increasing amount of instructions. In most cases the person has to read these instructions. Unfortunately, reading is both time consuming and intellectually consuming. We first have to read, then transform the instructions to the “graphical environment” – which is our world. A lot of instructions could benefit from replacing the words with pictures.
