The STC Technical Editing SIG is proud to present Writing and Editing Scripts for Video Tutorials with Tom Johnson. This presentation will explore techniques to make your scripts sound more like natural speech, as well as techniques that voiceover artists often use to make copy sound more natural.

It does depend on your processes, who's involved, the broader culture, industry, and so on. Once upon a time I worked in a drug and medical device labelling group; we were part of Quality and had to do the same business improvement/lean/etc. stuff that everyone else did. Processes and procedures got written up, were subject to audit, and there was hell to pay for non-compliance.

Is it necessary to mention the "password" since it's irrelevant? How about: "This feature allows an application to communicate with RWS using a token and an application ID."

@Debbie: Well, that is progress! Please let us know if you receive anymore multiple notifications by posting a discussion or wall post to the My STC Feedback group or the Get Satisfaction via the "Feedback" tab on the side of the screen. @Rick: Thanks for the reply. I will keep looking into this issue.
