A scopist edits transcripts to ensure that formatting, punctuation, grammar and typos are all corrected. In addition, it is often up to the scopist to ensure that all names and terms are spelled properly and any questionable areas are flagged. Many times, the transcript is given back to the court reporter, who then proofreads the transcript for final approval.
With CATalyst Edit, scopists and proofreaders have access to the CATalyst transcript files and can edit, make dictionary entries, globals and any other necessary changes before returning it to the court reporter for final production and delivery. Included in CATalyst Edit is one year of EDGE.
Valuable Features for Scopists and Proofreaders:
Case AudioSync Playback™
AudioSync provides realtime synchronization of audio with text as a transcription aid. Using CATalyst Edit software, scopists can playback audio while editing or proofreading written testimony. Adjust the playback speed without distortion and replay as many times as needed. Slow it down to help you understand a garbled or faint speaker. Speed it up and scroll text while playing audio when you are proofreading.
Global Suggest helps you to quickly define or replace untranslates and mistanslates. Global Suggest will analyze what was written and then offer a definition suggestion right inside of the replace/define dialog. All you have to do is pick the correct suggestion from the list. No need to type, which also means no need to worry about making a typing mistake.
Scopists can rapidly fill in appearance pages by selecting attorneys from a list rather than typing them each time. Once you enter a firm or attorney's information the first time, CATalyst keeps it in a handy list. You'll never retype a firm, address or attorney's name again!

With CATalyst, there is no need to panic if you make a mistake while steno or text defining. Undo Global works anywhere and anytime in the file! You can undo all occurrences of a global or just a single occurrence of a global. You can even save and close the job, come back into the job later, and still undo any global in any order.
Stop wasting your time retyping the same replacement text again and again. Intuitive replace pays attention to what you have replaced or defined in the past and automatically populates the replacement or define dialog with the correct text the next time. No more repetitive typing!
Keyboard Maps and Macros™
Are you transitioning to CATalyst from another software? Are there keyboard commands you would like to use other than what CATalyst has set up by default? With Keyboard Maps you can set your editing key commands to whatever you feel comfortable with. With Macros you can record and playback your common editing tasks. Imagine the time you’ll save by playing a macro to insert a title page, certificate page and then return you to your current location in the job all with the press of one key.
