Recent questionnaire surveys of on-the-job engineers indicate that they want training in technical speech. The author suggests that courses in technical speech might be improved if teachers knew more about how technical speech differs from other kinds of speech, and more about the requirements for successful technical speaking. Research into matters of audience, delivery, and audiovisual aids can help to provide this needed information.
