It's actually pretty standard for someone to have to convert transcripts or case files to online format. Someone had to do like 400 pages just recently in the Teresa Sivers case.
I do accept that it is indeed standard. I still ask, isn't it 2016 ?
Nowadays in some cases you have to pay a surcharge to have a paper bill for utilities sent to you. That's just a few pieces of paper and a stamp.
For something so massive, would seem that a process that results in a electronic document that could then be sent to whomever needs, and printed if a hard copy or a section or whole things was needed for any reason, would be ummm... efficient and cost effective!
But yep, I get it, and the main point for me is that it's the courts antiquated system that is slowing things down, not anyone trying to suppress information to the public.
