It actually depends. When I'm talking with people whose intelligence I respect and whom I trust to know what I'm talking about, I say scribe. When I'm dealing with people I don't know, I tend to say "inscriptionist" or "inscriber" because I want to be absolutely sure that they know what I'm talking about. It makes me grimace down to my English-minor marrow, but it's a necessary evil. Language's role is to facilitate communication, not to impede it.
