I then worked it over and came up with this:

Technical communicators create a variety of print and online documents
that are clear, concise, comprehensive, accurate, correct, accessible,
and professional. Typical deliverables include manuals, online
documentation, proposals, policies and procedures, and websites.
Technical communicators work in all types of businesses and industries
around the world and use a variety of methods, tools, and technologies
including writing, illustration, graphic design, photography, video, and
sound.

Incidentally, I'm not a proponent of brevity at all costs nor am I
inclined toward packaging the whole thing into a single sentence. Word
tells me this paragraph contains 63 words. I don't think that's too
much.
