Yes, the U.S. I live in New York City.
It is my uncertain understanding that a stenotype court reporter inputs the words that are said during the trial. He/she is paid a salary & benefits by the court for that work.
Then, if and only if one or more parties requests a copy of the trial transcript, the stenographer converts her inputted record into a court transcript, which he/she then sells to the requesting party. I believe that the money paid is hers/his to keep not the property of the court.
