Foot Pedal Controllers

Professional Foot Pedals

Increase your words per minute by giving your feet control of playback, leaving your fingers free to type.

The pedals are "plug and play" which make them easy to install and use. There are three controls which are usually set up for rewind, play/pause and fast-forward.

Express Scribe has been designed to work with professional foot pedals to help improve your transcription turn-around and increase productivity.

Transcription foot pedals are suitable for both Windows and Mac OS X.
