November 2008

From the President

Because we encourage feedback from you, our clients, we are able to create new, or improve on, our services and products based on what you need.

To that effect, we recently made a change in our litigation support product lineup and we are now sending a single CD with every transcript called Transcript Plus!

The CD includes transcripts in PDF format, condensed versions in PDF format, full ASCII files, E-transcript™(customized word search, printing and formatting options) and scanned exhibits in PDF format.

We hope this new product makes working with your transcripts that much easier and convenient.

Please don’t hesitate to email us with suggestions about either our services or this monthly e-letter, as it helps us tailor ourselves to fit you.

Best regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker
