As the use of computerized information continues to proliferate, so does the need for a writing method suited to this new medium. In Writing for the Computer Screen, Hillary Goodall and Susan Smith Reilly call attention to new forms of information display unique to computers. The authors draw upon years of professional experience in business and education to present practical computer display techniques. This book examines the shortfalls of using established forms of writing for the computer where information needed in a hurry can be buried in a cluttered screen. Such problems can be minimized if screen design is guided by the characteristics of the medium.
