I am the lone writer at a startup and I need to pick the
online help tool. I showed my manager Webworks (she has no
documentation background) and she thought it was very cool. Since
then I have gone to the STC conference and learned that Weboworks
is more of a book conversion tool and Robohelp provides the
capability to structure modular files that allow users to choose
their own navigation paths, browse, etc.
I want to describe the differences in a way that she can
understand and visualize. Can anyone provide input that is more
detailed and more basic than what appears in marketing materials?
I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thank you.
You may want to post your message on the HATT Yahoo Group
forum as this is where technical authors hang out and compare
tools. You are more likely to come across someone who has used both
tools in anger, that's all.
