Mobile Transcript: the Lawyer’s Lifesaver

The Mobile Transcript is a novel app that is very useful for all legal professionals.  A lawyer, paralegal, court reporters or legal assistant can employ this app to review court transcripts or depositions.  This device even allows a person to annotate their files!

Lawyers often work with court reporters who upload the transcripts to the Mobile Transcript account.  A court reporter pays for the Mobile Transcript app and provides this service to law firms and lawyers.  The court reporter pays $29 per month for this application.  While the court reporters upload the documents, a lawyer can view them on the go.

The Mobile Transcript is available for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, and Android smartphones.  When using this device, a legal professional may highlight significant parts of a testimony and email the information to their associates, expert witnesses or legal assistants.  This device allows a person to email a whole PDF file with highlights or just the highlighted parts.  Also, the app allows one to send it via Excel file.

Along with this feature, the app also allows a professional to write deposition summaries.  A lawyer can also change the font size and color of the files they are reviewing through this app.  To help a lawyer remember when they started reading, the Mobile Transcript has a time capture feature that logs the amount of time spending reading a transcript or deposition.  This makes it much easier to have the billable time available to a client.  This time log can be exported from the online version to a PDF or Excel file.  This app allows one to be more productive, especially during travel.  The Mobile Transcript is a worthwhile device a legal professional should consider employing.
