I mark transcripts using red text and yellow highlighting right on the page. I return the annotated pages via email in a PDF file. You must possess the latest version of Adobe Reader to see my corrections.
What I need from you is a PDF file of your transcript. If you don’t know how to convert your file into PDF format, then I have a simple solution for that: CutePDF. The process for converting a text/ASCII file to PDF using CutePDF are as follows:
- Download CutePDF.
- Install following the prompts.
- You may need to restart. You may not, though.
- Inside your software, with a transcript open, go to Print.
- Where you would normally select a printer to print on paper, click the drop-down or scroll through to locate CutePDF Writer, and select it.
- Click “Print”.
- It should prompt you where you want to save the file. You can choose your desktop, your My Documents, or wherever you like.
- E-mail me the newly created PDF file, exactly the way you would an ASCII. It attaches to e-mails in just the same way.
