QUOTES FROM TECHNICAL WRITERS WHO HAVE LEARNED STREAM TOOLS

“Everyone who has any kind of academic writing to do, anyone who has some serious scientific reports to make, whether alone or in a team, needs STREAM Tools.”

By using STREAM Tools in the beginning of the writing process, you never have to worry about formatting again! I can create another document using the same template! I don't have to waste any time setting up new formatting the next time I sit down to write.”

STREAM Tools provides the framework necessary for any report writing, whether alone or with trusted friends, your team. We have herein the infrastructure necessary for solid reports, the skeleton key, the scaffolding we need to write well. These tools open the doors to so much more, and to getting that grant.”

“I think STREAM Tools would be especially useful in classroom settings for students who plan to collaborate on technical writing projects (in academia and the workforce), or as a quick primer for someone who wants to train themselves for this type of work.”
