Audio matching on-screen text
I was having a dicussion with a few different instructional designers and developers about modules we had designed. The topic came up while reviewing on, that the on-screen text did not match the what the voice of the audio was saying. An example would be the user is hearing, "...the COURSES link in the navigation menu displays a list of courses that you are teaching." The on-screen text says "Mouse over the COURSES link for your list of courses. I think the preceived disconnect was with the instruction "Mouse over". So it made me wonder if there was a visual design 'best practice' for matching audio to text on screen.
In my years of TV editing and post production, the unwritten rule was that the visuals were to abbreviate the concept or meaning of what was spoken or heard, usually only pulling out the main point.
Any thoughts apprecaited.
