Prevail Sessions Application

When you join a Session, you are taken to the Prevail Sessions application where live proceedings take place. During a Session, Prevail Members have access to specialized Session panels in addition to familiar video conferencing tools. Prevail provides in-Session tools for adding flags to rough transcripts, presenting files and media to participants, creating video clips, and marking exhibits with annotations.

Once a Session has ended, users who have purchased Session Review can access video of individual participants as well as materials created or introduced during the Session. This includes the rough transcript, flags, clips, and all exhibit files. Flags and clips are also available but remain private to the creator.

All Prevail Sessions include a Host and technical support staff to ensure you have the best experience possible.

Certified Transcript Service

Following each Session, you can request and purchase a Certified Transcript copy our professional staff has reviewed to ensure the highest accuracy. Certified Transcripts are delivered after 10 days unless expedited.

You can request a Certified Transcript from the Session Host or contact Prevail at

Prevail Session Roles

Prevail participants include Guests, Prevail Members, and Session Hosts.


A Guest is a user who does not have an account with Prevail. Guests have limited permissions, such as view-only access to certain Session panels. Prevail Members and Hosts can invite Guests, including deponents or witnesses, to join a session by sharing the direct Session link.


A Prevail Member is a user who has an active account with Prevail. Prevail Members are granted more permissions than Guests, such as the ability to send chat messages or present files.


A participant is anyone present during a Session. Participants include Guests, Members, and Hosts.


A Host is a Prevail staff member who oversees each Session and fulfills the role and responsibilities of a court reporter or Session Manager (respective to State laws). With the full authority to swear in witnesses, stamp exhibits, and start or pause proceedings, Hosts also support participants by answering questions and assisting with technical difficulties.
