Paperless Transcripts

YesLaw PDFs

2 GB ICON WHTE BACKGROUNDA YesLaw PDF is a portable digital format that supports a hyperlinked word index, hyperlinked exhibits, annotations, as well as your other PDF tools. Using Acrobat, you can search across transcripts and exhibit files with a single search and mark-up/annotate the documents to collaborate with others. A YesLaw PDF transcript can be indexed and searched by e-discovery applications without additional conversion. You can copy and paste while retaining the transcript page and line formatting integrity.

The PDF format is an open standard with free viewing/printing software available, and most likely preloaded, on all Windows operating systems, Mac OSX, and mobile devices–Blackberries, iPhones, iPads, Droids, etc. Even with full bookmarks and a hyperlinked word index, a YesLaw PDF remains rather small and is about the size of a court reporter’s ascii file.

RealLegal E-Transcripts

E-Transcript files ensure page and line integrity and offer the security of a tamperproof, electronic signature. E-Transcript files are compatible with Westlaw Case Notebook and other popular litigation software. If you do not have litigation software, you can download the free E-Transcript Viewer.

E-Transcript Bundle Viewer is another free viewing tool that is used for opening ptx files that are created by CompuScripts’ E-Transcript Manager. Many law firms have their email filters set to block E-Transcripts with an exe file extension. When you order an E-Transcript, CompuScripts’ default protocol is to send you an E-Transcript with the ptx extension.

CompuScripts offers Publisher files in an E-Transcript Bundle with a ptz extension. This format will import directly into your LiveNote or Case Notebook software to be viewed and annotated.

This free E-Transcript Bundle Viewer will display the transcripts, exhibits, links, and video. Everything in the bundle can be viewed and saved.
