A survival guide for writers in the real-world, Writing and Designing Manuals, Third Edition has become a standard reference for technical writers and editors. Readable and practical, it addresses all aspects of manual development from choosing a format to writing effective warnings. Not limited to text elements, the manual also provides guidance for designing illustrations to complement the text and underscore the safety warnings.
The completely revised and updated Third Edition includes:
Þ Current materials on desktop publishing
Þ Alternative media such as videos, CD-ROMs, and on-line help
Þ The impact of new technology such as CD-ROMs and digital cameras on manual design and production
Þ New regulations for products sold overseas
Þ Impact of the Internet on manual design
Gone are the days when a manual might be a few pages of typewritten text. Thanks to the advances in computer technology, even tiny companies can produce slick, professional publications. Writing and Designing Manuals, Third Edition guides you through the messy, complex, frustrating, and fascinating business of producing manuals.
