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:


  1. Download CutePDF.
  2. Install following the prompts.
  3. You may need to restart. You may not, though.
  4. Inside your software, with a transcript open, go to Print.
  5. 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.
  6. Click “Print”.
  7. It should prompt you where you want to save the file. You can choose your desktop, your My Documents, or wherever you like.
  8. 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.
