I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Higher courts will review transcripts of recorded testimony in lower courts. Because you have to submit multiple copies of everything, most appellate courts won't accept the actual recording, but call and ask. If this is a recording you made yourself, contact the clerk of the lower court to see if they can give you a list of transcriptionists who are certified by the court. If the court made the recording, they can put you in contact with the court reporter to get a transcript.
