Summary

Technical Communication Todayepitomizes the shift in technical communication from literal-linear created to visual-spatial created documents. This evolution, which has been provoked by the ubiquity of the computer as a communication tool, is changing fundamental writing and reading processes. The text has been designed using the idea of ''chunking,'' where readable portions of text are combined with graphics. Not only does this concept facilitate learning, but it models the way today's technical documents should be designed. Its presentation of teaching readers how to write integrates a new awareness of how documents are read-by ''raiding'' for the information needed. The author wrote the text with the presumption that users are researching, organizing, drafting, designing, and revising directly on their computer screens. By mirroring these processes in its content and structure,Technical Communication Todayoffers a higher level of accessibility for readers.
