What’s New

Version 24.5.1

– Added the ability to reorder Video Segments within a Video Clip so that the segments can be played back in any desired order, not just chronologically.
– Updated the user interface so that Show > All Designations is the default view when creating a new Text Designation or Video Clip.
– For page and line number designations in video depositions, we made the unedited in points and out points a stronger bold so it's more obvious which in and out points have not been edited.
– Updated Aaron Cano video files in the sample Case File.
– Ongoing new features and capabilities.

– Fixed an issue where the video playback of a synced transcript with multiple video files could cause a freeze in certain situations.
– Fixed an issue where a Video Clip could fail to export for a synced transcript with multiple video files.
– Fixed an issue where deleting an Issue Code from a transcript's Create Designation popover could delete other uses of that Issue Code in the Case File.
– Fixed an issue where a synced transcript would automatically scroll if there were lines without any text in the TXT file.
– Fixed an issue where the time for the Video Clip duration would not update when adding or deleting video segments.
– Ongoing bug fixes and enhancements.

This app makes depo review fun

This only works once you have the right format transcript from the court reporter (TXT). If you have that, the app is magic. You can read and review faster than any other program, and the search is astonishing. There are a lot of report options, but I save PDF depo summaries after I review, and reference them later instead of the whole transcript. I can’t review a transcript without this app anymore.

My favorite app

This is an expensive app and the best money I have ever spent. Transcript pad allows you to annotate and organize your depositions. Now you can even synch a video and make clips directly from the transcript.

Buy this app if you ever work with depositions.

We always found TrialPad invaluable and we’re now starting to leverage TranscriptPad to get the benefit of the collaboration and the great reports.

Developer Response ,

Hi koorblaw, We have added many features for collaboration between the apps, and for users to be able to collaborate on Case Files. More new features and capabilities are coming soon!
