Applying Standard Approaches toward Improving Usability – 6 Oct 2016 [Meeting]

Need to rally a team or a stakeholder on the importance of standards for a content development project? This presentation provides an overview of benefits and costs of developing content with standards.

An overview of standards used by technical communicators includes XML, DITA, HTML, CSS, and WAI. In addition, some projects also involve reference to other discipline-specific standards.

On October 6, notions of the applicability of standards for content development projects were explored through an array of values to be obtained by uses of standards. Ron answered questions about applicability and presented specific examples of standards and their many uses.
