      When should regression testing be performed? Regression analysis of PDFs allows you to test system changes, changes to CMS, changes to stylesheet, changes to formatting software, and changes to graphic software. Regression testing should take place anytime your system, hardware, or software changes to determine if what was correct in the output is still correct in output. Changes may result in content disappearing, incorrect formatting, changes to the integrity of images and tables, and many other (sometimes subtle) issues that invalidate the reliability of the document. Antenna House Regression Testing System is for Automated – Fast – Accurate PDF to PDF & Image to Image Visual Comparisons

    DITA is a fantastic tool for authoring efficiency and content management. It might as well be the keystone for outstanding content experiences, like content personalization and multi-channel delivery. But caution! What was thought for content creation is not always the right fit for modern content publishing.

    Drawing from his experience as a content expert and senior consultant at Fluid Topics, Gaspard Bébié-Valérian will address in this webinar the specifics for content delivery of two key elements, metadata and granularity, and how to enrich and optimize them to build exceptional experiences with your DITA content.

    For years, the focus of our content strategy has been on crafting messaging for human audiences, leveraging personas, controlled vocabulary, and tone. However, with the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a new audience, our approach must evolve. How does this shift impact our writing, and how can we create content that resonates with humans while effectively training AI systems? Can the same content achieve both goals and does it hinge on our AI usage intentions? Join Leigh White in this thought-provoking webinar as she delves into the necessary considerations for how we must rethink our approach if we want to use our content to teach the machines to teach us.
