TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
In my mumble-mumble years documenting software, the primary value of screen captures has been as signposts to reassure users that they and the documentation are still in synch. Screen captures let users know that they are on the same path as the guide and have not missed a step or been led astray.
