There are different formats that transcripts can be ordered in from your court reporter. The one that we will be talking about in this blog is E-Transcript.
RealLegal is the maker of E-Transcript. E-Transcript files ensure page/line integrity. The court reporter can even attach a signature on the certification page.
First, to view the transcript, you need to go to: E-Transcript Viewer to download the free viewer.
Once you've been sent an E-Transcript, they're fairly easy to use. You can save it in different formats: ascii, RTF, Summation, or Sanction. You can also print a full-size transcript or a condensed transcript.
On the right-hand side, you will have a word index that will hyperlink to the transcript. This way, you can easily find a word, click it, and it will take you right to that portion of the transcript.
You will never have to ask for an E-Transcript from Legal Media Experts. We send an E-Transcript, ascii, condensed PDF, and full-size PDF with every order.
