Installing USB Foot Pedals for Transcription
Both Transcription Buddy and Dictation Buddy support the Infinity USB foot pedal from VEC Electronics.
Infinity Pedal from VEC Electronics
Users of Dictation Buddy v4.0 and Transcription Buddy v4.0 and above should enable the foot control support in the programs by plugging the pedal into the PC and then going to View => Options => Foot Control and checking the Enable Foot Control checkbox. You can then use the Foot Control Wizard to confirm the pedals on the control. You may also alter pedal functions on the Set Pedal Functions Window.
Users of Transcription Buddy, prior to V4.0 may also use the the Infinity foot pedal but must download this .dll file and save it into the same folder as Transcription Buddy is installed. By default, the folder will be: c:\Program Files\HighCriteria\TranscriptionBuddyRE or TranscriptionBuddyPE. Once you have downloaded and saved this .dll file to the appropriate folder, you should proceed with the General USB Support Steps, as outlined below. Note that Dictation Buddy only began supporting the Infinity foot pedal under version 4.0. Previous versions of Dictation Buddy did not support the Infinity pedal.
General USB Support Steps
You have now successfully installed the foot pedal. You must now enable support for the pedal in the program configuration. Go to View => Options => Foot Control and check the Enable Foot Control checkbox. You should then use the Foot Control Wizard to confirm the pedals on the control. You may also alter pedal functions on the Set Pedal Functions Window.
The steps described above are also valid for other USB pedals supported by Transcription Buddy and Dictation Buddy (Olympus R23/24 Foot Switch and VPEDAL).
