Why users can't find answers in help material -- STC Sacrament presentation from Tom Johnson

This presentation was similar to other presentations I gave on the same topic. However, since the presentation is highly interactive, the discussion varies quite a bit from presentation to presentation.

Note that there may be gaps of periodic silence during the presentation where someone is making a comment. The audience was pretty small (maybe 14 people?), so if you listen carefully, you can probably hear the comments. If not, I usually try to summarize what the commenter is saying.
