Most authoring systems also support a scripting language for more sophisticated applications. Authoring tools require less technical knowledge to master and are used exclusively for applications that present a mixture of textual, graphical, and audio data i.e Multimedia Creation. Authoring systems vary widely in features, functionality, look and feel, and learning capabilities of the user. Most of the authoring systems require some basic knowledge of heuristic thinking and algorithm design.
