Attach a Synchronized Exhibit to a Transcript

You can attach a synchronized exhibit to a transcript using the Transcript Work Area. Attaching a synchronized exhibit provides the ability to automatically display the exhibit in presentation when playing the synchronized video in court.

Open a Synchronized Exhibit

To attach a synchronized exhibit to a transcript, use the steps below:

  1. From the dashboard, click the Fact Management module.

  2. Select the Case Story tab in the left navigation panel.

  3. Open the needed case by double-clicking the case name in the Cases table. Alternatively, you can select the appropriate case name, then click the Open Case button in the ribbon bar above the table.

  4. Open the Transcripts Explorer by selecting the Transcripts tab on the left side of the page.

  5. Select a transcript from the list.

  6. Click the Open button in the ribbon bar in the Transcripts Explorer.

    The transcript opens and appears in the work area.

  7. Left-click the line in the transcript where you want the exhibit to display. To help find the correct location in the transcript, you can set the media to the needed time by using the playback bar beneath the multimedia player.

  8. Right-click on the selected line.

  9. Click the Attach synchronized exhibit button.

  10. Select the exhibit to be displayed and click the Next button.
