Electronic Transcript Options:

  • Adobe ® or PDF File

A PDF (portable document format) file is essentially a scanned image of a photo, graph or page of text.  A PDF allows you to view a document online the same as it looks in print (as opposed to an ASCII file which does not hold formats such as page and line numbers, bolded text, etc.)   PDF files are viewable, searchable and printable from virtually any platform — Apple ® Mac, Microsoft Windows ®, etc.  Exhibits can be linked to the PDF transcript for easy viewing.  Anywhere there is a reference to an exhibit within the transcript, just click on the yellow highlight referencing the exhibit and it will bring the document up on the screen.  This is Paradigm’s standard electronic transcript format.
Adobe Reader is required.  This is a one-time free download.

  • ASCII File

ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a “raw” transcript—a text-only file that must be formatted.  ASCII files are available via email and are housed on the Paradigm online repository.   ASCII files are commonly loaded to software programs such as Summation or LiveNote.  Since ASCIIs are always used electronically, delivering the ASCII file electronically versus via CD-Rom is also very GREEN.

  • RealLegal E-Transcript ® and Real Legal Publisher ®

Available upon request.

Exhibit Options

  • Digital/Scanned Exhibits

Digital exhibits are paper exhibits that have been scanned into a computer.  The standard file format is PDF.

  • Hyperlinked Exhibits

Digital exhibits can be hyperlinked to a transcript allowing you to view both the transcript and exhibits on your computer.  Exhibits are linked to the transcript in two ways:

  •  Via Adobe (.pdf)
  • Via Livenote (.lef)
