When your request is received, you will be contacted regarding an estimate of cost. Send no payment until contacted by our office.

Estimated Total and Deposit Amount


Number of Total Pages (1 hour of courtroom time = 50 pages) multiplied by the rate of $3.00 per page. For example: 2 hours courtroom time X 50 pages = 100 pages X $3.00 = $300.00). Multiply the Estimated Total of $300.00 by 80% = $240.00 for the deposit cost. Please understand that these are estimates only based on the above calculations as a transcriber has no way of determining the exact cost of a transcript until the order has been completed. Final payment must be made in its entirety before a transcript will be released to a customer. Cash deposits and final payments on transcripts must be made with exact change as the transcribers are unable to make change.

CD Copies


Copies made from the original digital recording can be made at the rate of $25.00 per audio CD. Send no payment until contacted by our office.
