Frequently Asked Questions

Contact Laurie Bell, Court Recording Program Manager, at laurie.bell@kingcounty.gov or call 206-477-0851.

The American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers provides certification.  Go to www.aaert.org for more information.

  1. Proof of certification as a transcriber with the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers (www.AAERT.org) or a court reporter licensed in the State of Washington (www.dol.wa.gov/business/courtreporters).
  2. Understanding and compliance with King County Local Civil Rule 80 (LCR 80).
  3. Completion and submission of the required documents to the Court Recording Program Manager for review and approval decision:
    • Affidavit Requesting for Court Approved Transcriber Status, signed under penalty of perjury.
    • A General Order Allowing Access to Sealed King County Superior Court Legal Court File.
  4. Approval of court-approved transcriber status by the King County Superior Court Clerk's Office.


The program requires a yearly renewal process, which occurs during the month of December.  Each transcriber must resubmit updated documentation in December to the Court Recording Program Manager in order to remain on the court-approved transcriber list for the following year.

Court-approved transcriber assignments may come from two sources: (1) a private party or law firm, or (2) the Clerk's Office Records Access staff.

An interested individual or law firm may directly contact a court-approved transcriber and arrange for an official transcript to be produced.  For official transcripts assignments paid for with public funds, at a rate fixed by statute or regulation, Clerk's office staff will contact the transcriber directly with the assignment.  Court-approved transcribers agree to accept an equitable share of public funded assignments.  Assignments will be rotated through all transcribers on the court-approved list.


Upon payment and request by a court-approved transcriber, clerk's office staff will upload a copy of the recorded court proceeding into the secure file transfer system "ShareFile" for retrieval by the transcriber.  For information on ShareFile, view: www.sharefile.com.
