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.

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