About the Author:

Linda Newman Lior has been working in software design and development for over 20 years in the field of information design. Her experience includes instructional design for educational software programs and computer based training, information design for start-up companies, and 10 years at Microsoft as a usability engineer, information experience designer and technical writer. She is currently focusing on information experience design and writing for SaaS web applications. She studied Instructional Design and Computers in Education at San Diego State University where she earned her MA in Educational Technology.

Review:

"Here [Lior] explains how to design and create the content that customers rely on to interact with a software application successfully ― such as the labels on virtual buttons to click, or step-by-step instructions displayed on pages. The information would be useful for technical writers and instructional designers, or whoever on the development team is responsible for writing, editing, or reviewing the user interface text."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
