We will have our first Interfaces guest speaker give us a presentation in a couple of weeks. I am very pleased to say that Ely-based copywriter, Sue Keogh, has agreed to come and talk to us about writing great content, and making sure we get our message across to the audience.
Courtyard Room, EMBL EBI, Weds, November 11th, 14h00
We often know what we are saying, but do the audience always understand the same thing? Even when the audience is expert, it is easy to use language that is very project-specific. Sue will give us various tips, examples and ideas for best practice, and tell us something about how to convey concepts and big ideas.
Having well-written and succinct text on our web pages is an interesting and challenging aspect of usability; one that can sometimes be forgotten in the pressure to have the perfect user interface.
