  1. Thank you for another great article! This has definitely helped with my queries within IAnnotate.

    Enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    1. So glad you benefited from this one, Denise 😀 I know it’s been of concern for some court reporters in the past, too. Knowledge is power!

  2. Caitlin–

    Please ignore my earlier request re iPad and my eyesight. Having read further on another of your message walls, I’ve discovered key differences that make the iPad look much more suitable than a ordinary pc. The resolution is superior, the comments on what reporters prefer, and pointing out how an iPad is read more as a tablet than a pc, and of course the best point re speeding up the process have convinced me to use the iPad and get with the latest technology. Of course, my past two years using my Kindle fire also plays a hugh part. I have the 8 inch Kindle and will weigh whether I go with the Air or the mini before finalizing my choice. I continue to find it amazing how much info is on this sight as I prefer to go forward.


    1. I’m glad to hear you’ve made some progress, Julie! There is a lot of information to wade through, isn’t there? There’s a lot more where that came from! 🙂

  3. Hello, Caitlin,
    When is a court transcript not available to the public? How can we determine that and then take the precautions you have mentioned? Recently, I read sections of a transcript that included a patient’s blood pressure readings, which could be under HIPAA regulations.

    1. Most transcripts are considered to be public records, but their availability varies widely by jurisdiction. I think that taking the same confidentiality approach to all jobs is the safest way to go. 🙂

      1. I ordered the transcript of a criminal case, which is where I found the medical data. There was no statement about the information being confidential. It was presented in open court.

  4. Is the IPad mini original good for this or did I need to look at 2-4/5?

    1. You would just want to make sure that whatever model you choose has or can be upgraded to iOS 9.0 or later, since that is the operating system required for iAnnotate (according to the iTunes page for the app). Hope that helps! ?

    1. Yes. It’s about as secure as it can be. The iPad is actually more secure than most PCs. 🙂
