If a hearing or trial was recorded by a court reporter, the court reporter is responsible for preparing a transcript of the hearing as required by law or upon request. Except for transcripts prepared for certain criminal matters, all other parties requesting transcripts are required to pay the reporters for preparing transcripts at the rate prescribed by law
