ACC partners with Adobe to provide students free software access

The Austin Community College District’s (ACC) Business, Government, and Technical Communications Department is partnering with Adobe Systems Inc. to provide students free access to industry-leading tools.

The Adobe Technical Communication Suite, which includes FrameMaker and RoboHelp, will help prepare students for employment in the technical communication industry.

“This donation provides our students with essential hands-on experience using the exact software they’ll likely encounter in their careers as technical writers, online help authors, and desktop publishers,” says David McMurrey, ACC Business, Government, and Technical Communications Department chair. “It’s the best technology for content development.”

The software donation will allow students and professors to author, enrich, review, manage, and publish interactive technical documents.

“I was first introduced to Adobe FrameMaker during my Technical Publishing with Adobe FrameMaker class,” says Jhenelle J., former ACC student. “It’s become my go-to tool. I’m able to put together various technical documents with ease.”

“ACC is doing a great job of preparing the next generation of technical communicators,” says Saibal Bhattacharjee, senior product marketing manager for Adobe’s Technical Communication line of products. “We’re excited to extend our partnership with ACC and offer their students access to the latest version of cutting-edge Adobe Technical Communication tools. We believe that possessing hands-on school project experience in these professional tools will provide a distinct competitive edge to the ACC graduates and provide them with an opportunity to impress prospective employers.”

ACC’s Business and Technical Communications Department offers degrees and certificates in business and government communications, social media communications, and technical communications. For more information visit,
