Written Transcript Requests

Upon request Court staff will provide copies of non-confidential recorded court proceedings. Jackson County Circuit Court records proceedings digitally on compact disc (CD) media. To listen to the audio recorded on CD, you will need a personal computer with a sound card and speakers. In addition, a software application called FTR Player Plus needs to be installed on the computer. This software is free and can be downloaded by clicking on the button below.

For hearings originally recorded on VHS or cassette, the log is only available on paper. For hearings originally recorded using FTR, the audio log is provided in HTML format on the CD.

​The fees for transcripts are set by state law (ORS 21.345) at:

 

  • ​$10.00 per CD is due immediately to the Courts to create a CD(s). 
  • Payment for the written documents, up to $3.00 per page for the original transcript, is payable to outside transcriber.
  • You may request that your transcript be expedited, but the transcriber may charge you a higher amount per page.

 

Fees are paid directly to the private transcriber. The private transcriber will tell you what forms of payment they accept (cash, check, money order, credit cards, etc.) and when the payment is due.

Please Note: If you are requesting a Non-Appeal Transcript, the transcriber may charge more than $3.00 per page. The transcriber will notify you regarding those costs prior to preparation of the transcript.

All fees must be paid in full before copies are made. Payment of the fees can be made by cash, check, cashier check, money order, Visa or Mastercard. For Credit Card Payments, call the Court Services unit at 541.776.7171 ext. 587​

​The amount of time it takes for the transcriber to prepare your transcript depends on the length of the hearing or trial being transcribed and the current workload of the transcriber. Questions or concerns about the time it will take to prepare a transcript should be discussed with the assigned transcriber.​
