Bring illustration alive and leverage images to navigate through topics and procedures.


Raise the attention and user experience by offering active and visual navigation.


XML-based structured content, DITA and S1000D is leveraged for automating the creation of interactive product guides.

Brakes. The brakes include: – Actuators on the handlebars – Brake cable – Brake callipers – Brake pads
Handle bars. A horizontal bar that attaches to the stem with grips at the ends that attach to the brake levers and the shifters.

Chain. A circular set of links that connect the chain ring to the cogs on the freewheel.
Seat and seat post. These install into the seat tube with a mechanism you can use to change the height

Hotspot images in S1000D and overview images in XML and DITA become interactive product navigation elements, guiding users to relevant topics, based on location or product part.

Hotspot Images vs. Interactive Product Guides

Tooltips on Hotspot images (as seen above) are leveraged by TXTOmedia to connect specific elements and product parts to the right topics. These associations exist in many TOCs and original images. TXTOmedis uses these associations to leverage illustrations as a TOC and filters topics on product parts and location.

Interactive vs. Linear

Images say more than a thousand words is quite a classic. Replacing listed TOCs with interactive product images is a huge leap forward in improving the user experience of user manuals. Instead of browsing and scrolling, one identifies the topic by pointing at the right spot or part of a product.


Another advantage of creating these visual interactive product guides is the ability to leverage existing localized content at the same time, providing an optimized experience to global audiences at once.
