1360 Studios' TMP for Mac
Software developer 1360 Studios has released Transcript Manager Pro, which it claims is the "first ever" real-time transcript management software for the Mac. The software is designed to allow attorneys to connect to court reporters while in deposition or court, and get a live feed of the court transcript. Released for Windows last year, 1360 said it decided to release a Mac version of Transcript Manager Pro to allow clients to run the software on their platform of choice, rather than conforming to a standard. The software is available from 1360 Studio's website for $650.
Transcript Manager Pro features a real-time display of the transcript, allowing users to review the text as it is being typed. Documents can be exported to Adobe PDF format, so it can be readily shared with intended recipients, and the "Search and Report" tool lets users search the transcript to find necessary information. The software also has a case management feature, in which users can organize key points and issues, and prioritize their status.
