1.       Do I need special software for realtime? 

a.      There are four softwares on the market that are used for realtime purposes.

                                                               i.      Bridge – (free software) – You are able to perform simple functions during the realtime deposition.  You can make quick marks, notes, search words, and issue code.  Each file is saved after the deposition.  You cannot run reports and you cannot set up cases. 

                                                             ii.      Transcript Manager Pro – ($199.00 per license) – You are able to search text, make quick marks, issue code, and make notes during the deposition.  You can run reports.  You can set up a case so each deposition is listed under the named case.  

                                                            iii.      LiveNote – (Monthly subscription or $70.00 token) – This is the most comprehensive of all of the realtime softwares.  You are able to make notes, search words, and issue code.  You can run reports.  This software also includes a word wheel.

                                                           iv.      Summation – If you are using Summation as your litigation support software, Summation includes a free realtime software.

                                                             v.      CaseViewNet – (free software) - You are able to perform simple functions during the realtime deposition.  You can make quick marks, notes, search words, and issue code.  Each file is saved after the deposition.  You cannot run reports and you cannot set up cases.  This software also contains a "dynamic word index" that builds as the deposition progresses for easy searching.

 

2.       What else do I need besides the software and computer?

a.      Hunter + Geist reporters use a wireless realtime connection to your computer. Our reporters will bring everything that is needed for the wireless hookup. If you plan on receiving realtime from another firm (either in-state or out-of-state), you will possibly need a serial port on your computer or a USB-to-serial adapter. Hunter + Geist keeps adapters on hand. 

3.       Is there any extra cost for realtime?

a.      There is an extra cost for realtime.  Most court reporting firms charge an added per-page fee for you to receive the realtime feed.

 

4.      When the deposition is over, will I have the transcript on my computer?

a.      Yes.  Once the court reporter disconnects from your computer, the transcript is resident on your computer.  If any notes or quick marks, for instance, were made, those remain in the transcript.

 

5.       Why should I call Hunter + Geist for my realtime depositions?

a.      Hunter + Geist employs 13 Certified Realtime Reporters.  You can be assured the quality of the reporter’s realtime is accurate, readable, and understandable.  We also send Sean Harte, our IT person, to your first realtime deposition to ensure connection with the court reporter and to answer any questions you may have.  This has been a very positive service and one our clients have come to rely upon.  Hunter + Geist offers free training on the realtime softwares listed above, with the exception of Summation.
