The Value of Visual Content and the Simplified User Interface with Daniel Foster of TechSmith

Download to read offline

It can be difficult to onboard users to new and complex interfaces and workflows. New research shows that images and video enhance understanding and retention of complex information and tasks and can even increase productivity, but software often changes quickly and requires regular updates and localization.

How can we leverage the power of visual communication without having to constantly localize new visual content? Simplified User Interface (SUI) helps you create powerful and useful images to help your users better understand your content while extending its shelf life and often eliminating the need for localization.
