Condensed Transcripts and Full-Text Word Index

We can convert any transcript into miniature format through the use of a CD. Each page of the condensed transcript contains eight pages of printed transcript, reducing a 200-page transcript to 25 pages. Each condensed transcript has a complete key word index attached, listing every word in the transcript, number of occurrences, and page/line references. E-Transcripts by RealLegal® are available with their own seach engines.

ASCII Diskettes/Rough ASCII

This universal computer language can be read by any litigation support software. CD's are provided upon request.

Rough CD's are also available. This option should be ordered when the deposition is scheduled. After the deposition, reporters can provide a rough draft of the deposition in text form. The reporter will note that the copy is not edited, not certified and not in final form. Page numbers and line numbers will not match the certified transcript when it is received. It is best to delete or dispose of this draft when the final transcript arrives.

Realtime Text Viewing of Depositions

Realtime transcription is the instantaneous translation of steno notes into English. This technology enables an attorney to hook up his or her laptop computer to the court reporter's laptop and steno machine. The attorney will be able to immediately view the translated English text of a deposition on their computer screen as the deposition takes place, add notes to the testimony and scroll up or down to review in preparation for cross examination. The resulting real-time draft can aid in preparing for the next deposition and can also be easily shared with co-counsel or experts. It is also more efficient to use realtime if an interpreter is being used for the deposition.

This rough draft transcript can deliver many advantages, including eliminating the need for note taking, therefore increasing the attorney's comprehension and control.

Transcript Archival

We archive every transcript generated by our reporters. This is a valuable feature in the event a transcript needs to be produced at any time... even years later... after the original transcript is prepared.

Exhibit Services

Getting a handle on the sometimes overwhelming number of exhibits and documents involved in a case can be a full-time job. At your request, we will scan all exhibits for archival. This means you can request a CD-ROM containing all the exhibits to a particular case or deposition at the time of the deposition or just before trial. Since each CD-ROM will hold thousands of pages of documents, you can carry boxes of exhibits in your briefcase.

We also provide document indexing, Bates stamping, imaging and copying services, including over-sized and color copying of blueprints and photographs.
