With TranscriptWizard™ Plus you can attach transcript exhibits - PDFs, photographs, audio or video files or any other file you desire (up to 2GB per attachment or 10GB total) - to the PDF resulting in a complete package in one PDF file.
Exhibits Open as Separate Documents
With scanning, exhibits appear at the end of the transcript, unindexed, with no fast, easy way to find them. To look for them, you have to leave the page you are reading and lose your place in the transcript. Then you have to figure out where each Exhibit starts and stops to find the one you want.
With TranscriptWizard™ Plus, each exhibit is listed with a link and can be opened without leaving the page you are reading. Simply click on the attachment icon on the left hand side of the PDF, find the exhibit in the list and click on it. It opens in a separate document allowing you to view the exhibit while you read the testimony. You can open several exhibits at a time to view them side by side.
Hyperlinked Word Index
TranscriptWizard™ Plus creates a Hyperlinked index that appears in the bookmark section of the PDF display. This allows you to scroll through the index without leaving the page you are viewing.
When viewing a TranscriptWizard™ Plus generated PDF in Adobe Reader, clicking on the Word Index hyperlink will open the Search sidebar and show you each and every reference of the selected word in its context in the transcript. Key-Word-In-Context. It lets you quickly decide which reference you are looking for without wasting time having to click on each one.
Outputs PDF in Standard as well as Condensed formats
In addition to the standard format, TranscriptWizard™ Plus can condense a transcript into 2, 3, 4(Mini) or 6 pages/sheet. It can even give you a place for writing notes on your hard copy printouts.
You pick one or more layout styles and they can all be generated at the same time, with or without a word index. Even the Word Index can be generated separately.
Can Format, Index and Make Searchable Rough ASCIIs and other text files
TranscriptWizard™ Plus has a very flexible import capability. Not only can it import clean, final ASCII transcript files but it can also process roughs. It detects run on pages, even run on lines, and breaks down the text into lines and pages. This is an ideal feature for daily court transcripts or deposition roughs that you want formatted and indexed in a hurry.
This feature allows you to import any text file and turn it into an indexed and searchable PDF.
Condensed format can be in Column or Row order
While it's natural to read a condensed transcript in column order (top to bottom), this doesn't work well when trying to read the PDF on a computer screen. Trying to read a column ordered PDF can result in a lot of scrolling and frustration. Row ordered requires much less scrolling when reading on a computer screen. TranscriptWizard™ Plus let's you choose to output either column order or row order.
Allowing you to choose the most efficient format for you.
Formatted header for quick identification of Transcript
TranscriptWizard™ Plus searches the transcript for the witness name, examination date and volume number and formats a header for each transcript. You have the option of adding an abbreviated caption and an additional center label to allow the transcript to be more quickly identified.
Can Highlight Answers or Questions
TranscriptWizard™ Plus can highlight either the Answers or Questions of a transcript by marking the text in bold.
Allows you to add a Watermark
During the PDF generation step, TranscripWizard™ Plus can place a watermark on each page of the transcript. Allowing you to quickly identity draft or confidential transcripts.
