The FTW Transcriber is compatible with the Infinity USB pedal (as used with Express Scribe), the Olympus RS-27 and RS-28, and Philips pedals (coming soon). To purchase a pedal, click here.
To start using a pedal, simply plug it in to your computer and restart the FTW Transcriber. You may need to restart your PC, unplug other pedals that you are not using, and close all other transcription software. You may also need to try more than one USB port.
It is common for transcribers to use the FTW Transcriber without a pedal. You can use the buttons on the software’s interface by mouse-clicking on them, or more conveniently, you can use hotkeys; that is, you can press keyboard buttons to stop, start, rewind and forward your recording.
