Re: Survey: Preferred Help Format

I far prefer the web browser option. Its based on something everyone should learn first, ie how web sites work etc, so one does not need to know about function keys and all of that sort of stuff.
Its also easier if you want to cut and past stuff for future ref as well.

Subject: [nvda] Survey: Preferred Help Format

My team hasn't told me which help format we will be using for the online help. So, I thought I'd ask a little survey:

Which online help system do you prefer to use and a brief why, a.k.a. does one grant you more opportunities than another or is one more difficult with which to make a screen reader work?:

A) Win Help (chm): old-style windows help system with a content tree on the left, a large pane containing information filling the right and center areas, and a header across the top with forward, backward type buttons.

B) HTML Help: the design is similar to Win Help, but the whole thing runs in a web browser-whichever one is your default browswer.

C) PDF - Portable Document Format with proper tags.
