(a) Hearings reporters, or electronic court reporters, shall report stenographically, or electronically, the proceedings in the trial of every action or proceeding in the workers' compensation court. Electronic court reporting shall be used only when hearings reporters are unavailable for any reason.

(b) Each hearings reporter, or electronic court reporter, shall also, upon the order of any judge in the court, transcribe his or her report to be filed with the court. He or she shall also make a transcript of the whole or any part of that report upon request, filed with the court, by either party to the action or proceeding, and when completed and within the time limited by the court for filing the transcript, shall immediately deliver it to the party ordering it, or to the attorney of record of that party. For this service, the reporter shall be paid a reasonable compensation, not less than five dollars ($5.00), and not exceeding three dollars ($3.00) per page for originals and one dollar and fifty cents ($1.50) per page for copies of it, to be allowed by the court. If the transcript is used in subsequent proceedings in the cause, the cost of it may be allowed as a part of the costs.
