I don’t know how often you get feedback on how well your program works in the field, so I thought I’d give you some.

I’ve been using AS in the courtroom down here in SC for 4 years now. Today was the first time, believe it or not, that I’ve had to do a playback for a jury. I’ve read back questions and answers mid-trial off my screen on occasion, but I haven’t had to do a full scale playback. Then today I get the dreaded request from the jury, and they wanted to hear not just one thing but three — and from three different days.

Back in the dinosaur days of tapes, that would have been nerve wracking — all that wasted time fastforwarding and rewinding while people sat in the courtroom staring at me. Not today. I pulled up each file, did my control-find, and bing, there was my testimony. I moved from file to file to file with ease — and, best of all, without needing a break to scramble around looking for the next material. The judge was so impressed!

I’ve been waiting all this time to show off, and I finally got my chance today!

All the best,
