Preserve the integrity of the record. Electronic transcripts (E-tran and PDF files)are increasingly popular as alternatives to hard copies.
E-transcripts will allow you to view the transcript on the same page as the word index and can also be printed in condensed format. Each RealLegal E-Transcript includes built-in virus protection, a hyperlinked word index, as well as condensed and word index printing capabilities. Real Legal E-Transcripts dramatically reduce the time you spend digesting and summarizing transcripts E-Transcript files guarantee page and line integrity, so attorneys and courts get a consistent, professional transcript every time.
Each E-Transcript file is fully interactive with an automatically populated key word index that is linked to locations in the transcript. Word searches are available in seconds. You can also index multiple depositions. Best of all, there is no huge learning curve with E-transcript. Download and install the free E-transcript viewer, from www.reallegal.com. Double click on your transcript and you are up and running with the software.
PDF files allow the exhibits to be attached directly with the transcript. Word indexes are also available but at the end of the document rather than on the same page. All that is needed to read PDF files is standard Adobe software, which runs under any known firewall. With E-transcript files we have occasionally been restricted by internal firewall restraints.
