Introduction

Aids and Barriers to Communication Every time a type of document will have reasons why it is good and bad for being used.

For example when a business needs to speak to a business contact a long distance away, and they want to see the person as well. This can be an aid to successful communication because facial expressions can tell an important story rather than just listening to their voice. By this the medium of video conferencing is electronically done verbally and can be done written depending on the software used. This can be an aid because using two different mediums can be more effective and useful because it can be helpful to the person that you are using videoconferencing with. ...read more.
