OptiDep  
 
for digests of deposition transcripts
 
     

An OptiDep™ digest gives the essence of your transcript, in narrative form, with the original text in footnotes.  You can readily take stock of what the parties have admitted - as well as what the deposing attorneys have failed to elicit.  No matter how well you may know your deposition, often others don't have time for the full transcript.  Even you may be surprised to see what the cold eye of the computer thinks of your supposed 'gotcha' moments.  In addition, in preparing an affidavit, or a statement of the facts, an OptiDep™ digest can dispel a writer's cramp.

If you prefer to encrypt your transcript before sending it, download the free external version of our software. It creates a masked transcript, in which proper names and the like are replaced by two-character codes assigned at random. The external version also produces some useful side-documents, and it highlights your transcript page-by-page on the screen.

Send us either the original transcript or the masked transcript.  A trained specialist puts it through an in-house version of our software.  You receive an approval version of the digest.  If you wish, pay the specialist less than a dollar per transcript page and receive the full version.


Please note that our software operates only upon an electronic transcript, obtained from the reporter, in plain text format (upon 'txt', but not upon 'pdf').
