When it comes to exhibits during a remote deposition, DepoRemote™ makes it easy and convenient to display exhibits and share them with the other participants. First, make sure the exhibits are accessible somewhere on the computer or device you are using for the remote deposition. When you are ready to share the exhibit with the witness, and all other participants in the DepoRemote™ meeting, go down to the bottom of your screen, and click on this button here that says “share screen”.
As you can see, some options have popped up for you, based on what you have on your computer. If you click on the first box that says “screen”, that gives you the ability to navigate to the exhibit on your computer, with the participants watching what you are doing. If you have the exhibit already pulled up on your computer somewhere, you will see it pop up as one of these options, and you can just click on it. Once you have the right document or picture pulled up, everyone in the DepoRemote™ meeting will be viewing it at the same time.
Once you are finished sharing the document, you can click on “stop share” here at the top, and then we are all back in the regular video conference.
Here is another option I would like to show you. You can also send a copy of any document to all of the participants, right here in the chat window. All you need to do is click on “file” and you will be able to upload any file from your computer, into this chat window. Then everyone can have access to the file, and will be able to download it onto their own computers.
If you have a folder which contains many files, such as all of the exhibits, we recommend putting that folder into a file sharing program, such as dropbox, box.com, or sharefile. Then you can paste the hyperlink into this chat window, which will take everyone to that folder in your file sharing program. That is a very convenient and easy way to share the exhibits with everyone.
If you would like one of our DepoRemote™ technicians to attend the remote deposition, he or she will be available to share the exhibits, using “share screen”, or to upload files into the chat window, so you don’t have to worry about it. Having the technician there to assist you will put your mind at ease, so you can focus on the deposition, and not on the technical things.
