Title: Interface Design & Document Design
Edited By: Carel Jansen
Rob Punselie
Piet Westendorp

User interfaces and supporting documentation are both supposed to help people when using a complex device. But often, these forms of support seem to come from different worlds. User interface designers, document designers, and researchers in both interface and document design share many goals, but are also separated by many barriers. In this book, user interface designers and document designers from Microsoft Corporation and from Apple Computer, plus researchers from several universities try to bridge the gap between interface design and document design. They discuss opportunities for closer cooperation, and for more integrated and effective help for users of modern technology. List of contents: Preface 1. Parallels and dichotomies in Interface Design & Document Design Piet Westendorp, Carel Jansen, Rob Punselie 2.
