    Reliable Foot pedal

    Posted by Pat Galloway on Sep 18th 2023

    This device is incredibly handy, almost like having an additional hand during transcription. I can effortlessly manage playback using my foot, allowing me to keep my hands free from typing and concentrating on the material. The build quality is solid - it doesn't slip around on the floor, and the pedals are nice and responsive. No need to stomp on them; a gentle press does the trick. What's more, it works seamlessly with various transcription software, eliminating the need for any adjustments to my existing setup.

    Solid Foot pedal

    Posted by Miguel Q. Tyler on Oct 8th 2022

    As a transcriptionist, I have used several foot pedals in the past. For me it is important that the foot pedal feels solid. This one feels very solid and I can comfortably use it for hours. It's really worth it.
