Good afternoon all,
In my recent trial, I ran into a situation where my attorney insisted on naming video clips with a number prefaced by a series of letters, i.e. CMF001 (Clip, first name, last name). I am not great at the keyboard and was using OnCue software. I realize I could have changed the names to something simpler but that would have resulted in duplicate clip names. In case you don't know, in OnCue you need to press X then the exhibit number, e.g. X1, XP1, XD1, etc, to display your exhibits. As I did not want to be hunting and pecking during the trial I found a solution that worked well for me, a USB keypad that had a few keys that were programmable. I used the Penclic keypad that had three programable keys. I programmed one to be the X key, I programed the other to be XCMF; and programmed the third to be another X and another exhibit code (XCJF) thus I could work almost entirely off the keypad without having to resort to a back and forth between the keyboard and the keypad. I guess a simpler solution is to learn how to type well, but I will save that for another day.
