Description/Educational Objectives: The State of California has mandated a move to the paperless courthouse. Court reporters will learn how to produce paperless transcripts from creating an ASCII to providing electronic distribution of PDF transcripts. With YesLaw, reporters deliver a highly functional PDF which includes automatic bookmarking, automatic creation of multi-volume master indexes, and easy secure delivery to all parties.
·      Installation and set-up of YesLaw software
·      Recommendations for output to paperless delivery
·       Overview of creating a YesLaw PDF from your ASCII output
·      Delivery options for Los Angeles Official reporters
·      What the delivery looks like and how to access online content
As a result of attendance at this seminar, the reporters will be able to recognize compound construction and punctuate it correctly, identify parentheticals and fragments and introductory elements, and punctuate them correctly.

John Garnett has been working with YesLaw for the past 10 years. John has overseen the development of the YesLaw reporter transcript-to-video synchronization software, and the launch of YesLaw PDF Transcript Generator Software paired with the YesLaw Online Repository. Mr. Garnett has designed an efficient and easy-to-use interface for the creation and distribution of electronic transcripts within the YesLaw software. He continues to respond to user feedback for the development and improvement of YesLaw software features.
Diana Van Dyke has been a court reporter since 1995.  She began her career as an independent contractor reporting depositions for over five years before fulfilling one of her professional goals of becoming a Los Angeles Superior Court Official Court Reporter in 2001.  After more than ten years of serving the public as an official in almost all of the various case types for which Los Angeles provides a court reporter, she now finds herself experiencing the challenge of an assignment in a long-cause felony trial court.  This is Diana’s 10th year of proudly serving the membership as a LACCRA Board member.  This will be the sixth year that Diana has participated in LACCRA's E-filing Committee, helping usher into the court system the newest tool in our court reporters' array of useful assets to our justice system.
