1 hr Mar 28, 2012: 2 pm EST & Feb 11, 2013: 2 pm EST & May 15, 2012: 2 pm EST

Doc-To-Help 2012 features a flexible new Mobile Help output. It is HTML5-based, and uses two Web technologies - jQuery and jQuery Mobile - that make it browser- and device-independent. It is also Section 508 compliant.

This output is simple to build right out of the box and deploy (just copy the files to your server). This webinar will cover best practices for creating and customizing a Mobile Help project.

  • Structuring Mobile Help
  • Tips and considerations for graphics , tables, and TOCs
  • Mobile terminology
  • Minimalist writing
