I depend on the developers for information and for creating screenshots.

Our software is made for programming hardware, and it has a lot of
constraints - depending on the condition on hardware and programming
devices - that make it next to impossible to create all scenarios. I *can *do
my own exploring, which I of course do, as well as working closely with our
requirements team. Still, some scenarios I cannot create on my own. I need
help from the few specialists who can tamper with the hardware. Or I need
one of the developers to simulate for me, as I don't have the proper tools.
The developers know that, and I experience that they are always willing to
help me out.

To be honest, I don't think any of them care deeply for documentation. But
they do want to help out a colleague. I am part of a scrum team, and I
believe it is a great advantage to be "one of the guys".
