A transcript is a typed copy of the Court’s audio record.  A transcript is prepared by an independent transcriptionist.  The transcript is made from the recording of the Court event.  In-Chambers discussions and Settlement Conferences are not recorded.  Small Claims and Violation trials are not routinely recorded but arrangements may be made at least one business day in advance of any hearing.  Except where the transcript is ordered by the State, the cost of preparation must be paid in advance by the requesting party.  Those payment arrangements are made directly between the requestor and the transcriptionist.  Please contact Benton County’s Transcript Coordinator at the number listed on this page for the contact information of a transcriptionist who is trained in preparation of transcripts suitable for future Court matters or you may seek your own transcriptionist.

A transcriber may not charge more than $4.25 per page for preparation of a transcript (ORS 21.345). 

Transcript preparation is a lengthy process.  Advance notice is essential.
