February 2023

Kia ora koutou katoa,

Welcome back to the TechCommWire newsletter for 2023. We hope you’ve had the chance to relax and unwind over the holiday season. 2023 – let's go!

From the President

President Katie Haggath welcomes us back and touches on our plan for this year, including opportunities to become a Branch Co-ordinator, write for our newsletter and take part in the salary survey coming up.



On our radar this month: continuing to work with our UK and Australian peers, Braille news, a ChatGPT teaser, the Plain Language Act 2022 taking effect soon and LinkedIn highlights.


Let's tech communicate

This month we're learning about: rainbow inclusive language, an accessibility toolbox, Aotearoa New Zealand stock images, simple writing paying off (literally), greenwashing, te reo Māori translation and transliteration, German and French language tricks, and OpenAI's ChatGPT.
