Hello Emotion: smile

I am not sure if the end of the sentence is correct.


"A user is authorized to join the voice channels and the text channels that have been made available to him/them."

Those are my two ideas on how to end this sentence. Maybe you have a better idea of ending this sentence, please share your thoughts and correct me if I'am wrong.

Thanks in advance Emotion: smile

The choice of pronoun to refer to a single person of unspecified sex, such as a "a user", is a perennial problem in English. In your sentence, I think that most people would accept "them", outside of a very careful formal writing context. "him", which used to be common in such cases, is now frowned upon. "him or her" is a possibility but can feel clunky. "them" is probably your best choice, though a way of avoiding the issue altogether is:

Users are authorized to join the voice channels and the text channels that have been made available to them.

That is a common conundrum. It is usually best to write around it, perhaps "Users are authorized to join the voice channels and text channels that have been made available to them."
