    ASCII
    (pronounced “askee”) A computer term which stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. ASCII is a means of exchanging text among dissimilar computers and computer programs. The term ASCII in court reporting is usually used to mean a file in this format. ASCIIs are the most common form of litigation support offered by court reporters at this time. Having the ASCII of a transcript allows a law firm to load the text into a computer for fast searches and extractions of portions of the testimony. The programs used for this purpose range from common word processors to sophisticated text databases.

    It differed from a hard copy or pdf.
