The FTW Transcriber’s hotkey system enables you to carry out certain functions without moving your hands away from your keyboard. This means you can use the software without a foot pedal if required. The most common default hotkeys are shown on the Settings menu.
Other hotkeys, known as Keyboard Shortcuts, can be used to quickly insert common phrases into your text, such as [overtalking]. These can be access and configured by going to Settings, Keyboard Shortcuts Menu (details here).
The hotkey functions can be moved to different keys if required (details here).
