Tools for Creating Deposition Summaries and Reports
Your complimentary Barkley Mobile Transcripts make creating deposition summaries easier by enabling you to highlight and comment on testimony in your transcripts across your devices. You can then export these annotations to an editable chart containing the testimony, comments and highlights with the line and page number. Barkley clients say this functionality is usually all they need for their deposition summaries and motions for summary judgment.
When more complex cases require designating issues, tagging testimony or color coding, Guest Presenter of Barkley’s Law In Motion ethics eM/CLE recommends using TranscriptPad. Available only for the iPad, TranscriptPad provides variety of options for highlighting and tagging the transcript according to issues. You also can flag portions as well as add notes. The best part is that TranscriptPad enables you to generate a customized report containing exactly the information you need. You can even choose to export just the testimony page and line number.
You’ll, of course, need to download the text (.txt) file of the transcript from your secure BarkleyWeb account into the app.
