Transcripts often reference exhibits and evidence. The ability to view that evidence as you are reading a transcript is useful in your review. Exhibits attached directly to a transcript excerpt are an easy way to refer back to those exhibits.
Concordance Desktop allows you to browse to your hard drive, network, or the Internet to attach a file, creating a direct hyperlink to a file or Web site so that it can easily be referenced later.
