Realtime transcription is the process of converting shorthand notes produced on a shorthand machine (e.g., ProCAT i m p r e s s i o n) to English text and the immediate displaying of the same for the benefit of consumers.
CasePad is a realtime testimony browser (viewer) and document manager which displays the realtime text produced by a court reporter using ProCAT Winner computer-aided transcription software or an i m p r e s s i o n realtime writer. Judges, attorneys, or a hearing impaired consumers may use the CasePad app to preview the transcript of a proceeding in realtime, search the transcript, store it in the clouds, or email it to colleagues in RTF or HTML format.
CasePad user may connect to a realtime court reporter over a cabled/WiFi network or use the Internet for remote access. Once connected to a realtime session, the user will receive any prior testimony for the session in progress and then receive additional testimony as it becomes available. The user may scroll through the realtime transcript or search for a passage or review an earlier testimony. The Follow RT button enables the user to jump to the end of a realtime transcript. CasePad offers an intuitive case manger which allows the user to organize their documents by case and case date.
