Most lawyers are familiar with the standard types of transcripts for depositions. Generally, you can get a full-sized copy, condensed copy (mini), or a copy on diskette. If you prefer to get transcripts electronically, you are probably used to getting the diskette, which is referred to as an ASCII.

If you are familiar with ASCII, you also are likely aware of its limitations for use with transcripts. Fortunately, there is another available option for electronic transcripts referred to as an e-transcript. Court reporting services such as Brandon Smith and Del Vecchio offer e-transcripts through RealLegal for minimal or no fee. With more widespread availability and little to no cost, it’s likely that e-transcripts will take over as the format of choice for deposition transcripts.
