|Key Trends for Software User Assistance – Mark Your Calendars!|
User assistance is much more than “Help.” It encompasses a wide range of skills and technologies that are combined to improve the software user’s experience.
As Technical Communicators, we contribute through wizards, tutorials, and web-based training. We develop and populate knowledge bases and content management systems. Many of us are now embedding helpful content directly into the user interface. Printed manuals and their PDF equivalents are still an important element of our documentation sets. We are also involved with usability testing, localization, testing, quality assurance, and branding.
This presentation provides a cutting-edge overview of the latest trends in software user assistance, defines the key terminology, highlights the most important technologies, and offers predictions on future directions of our field.
