Jacobsen's summary is dead on. May I add that things that have transient
quality, such as sound and motion, are less likely to be retained than
graphics, colors and text that stay put?

Also, thousands of computer users have sensory disabilities (visual,
hearing, etc.) so confining online Help key concepts to sound and/or motion
penalizes them...possibly involving the access provisions in the Americans
with Disabilities Act.
