will Infinity pedal work with Inscribe?
I'm switching companies and foot pedals and don't understand.  I'll be using Emdat-Inscribe, and the pedal I have is an Infinity USB1.  Are these compatible? I've done what it says to do on the site for other pedals and it still won't work.  Does anyone know if this Inifinity foot pedal will work with Inscribe?
Does your Infinity pedal work with DocQscribe?

Just wondering if your Infinity foot pedal works in DocQscribe?  Does it automatically recognise it?

My friend has a footpedal that a former employee of Medquist was using, and went to use it as a new employee with MedQuist and it won't work now.  It works in Express Scribe perfectly.  MedQuist says you have to rent one from them and they won't "troubleshoot" problems with the pedal since it wasn't purchased through them......(even though it was by this former employee).

Any suggestions?

A regular Infinity USB pedal should work with their system. Why not ask them for sure? nm
If the latest version, post below says regular Infinity pedal will not work and cannot use outside p

Bringing up ExpressScribe pedal question again. Does anyone have 9-pin Infinity pedal on a USB?


Infinity wav pedal
The Infinity wav pedal comes in three configurations, IN-USB-1, IN-BMG (15 pin) & IN-DB9 (9pin).

What wav player program are you using, Express Scribe?

Have you upgraded your operating system?

I use my USB Infinity pedal..nm
Infinity pedal
I use the same pedal I used with DQS with MQ.  It's Infinity.  If you want the specifics, I can look them up.  In Emdat you will have to do a pedal wizard thing to get it going.  I thought it wasn't "taking" because it was so simply.  I was doing and then undoing what I'd did.  When it says to press the pedal.  You simply step on an off of it and not keeping holding it down, which is what I also did and others have done I believe.  In other words, complicating an easy task which I do!
The pedal is Infinity IN-USB-1.

The headphone, and I have tried several, plugs into the little audio hole on the computer.  The OS is XP.  I hope that covers it.


My foot pedal says Infinity on it. (sm)
A lot of people refer to a wave foot player as any basically any pedal, but there is an actual brand that is a WAVpedal.  You can use Google and find a lot of answers that way.
Infinity or what kind of pedal??
How do you know what kind of pedal you have?  I see no markings on mine to identify it.  I see you all talking all the time about them, but don't know what I have except that it hooks into a USB port.  ??  Can you tell me how to identify?  Thanks. 
Can anyone help with Infinity foot pedal??

Help! Just bought a used infinity foot pedal, works fine with Express Scribe but can't figure out how to get it to work with DSS. I don't have a serial port that it will fit into in my computer, but have it plugged in with an adapter/USB plug. I have Olympus DSS player 2002 software installed on my computer and tried to play an old file and it would not work. I need to be able to play wav files. Help!


Infinity USB pedal is a common one. See that and others
Infinity Foot Pedal
I have a brand new Infinity foot pedal I have never used if you are needing one.  Please write me back.  Thanks Mary
Infinity Foot Pedal
Can someone please help!!  I can't seem to program my foot pedal for back space or fast forward.  I can use the "F" keys but would like to use the pedal only.  No matter where I press all I get is current dictation.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Should have added below that my Infinity USB pedal works with it as well.

An Infinity 3-button pedal will do just about everything. Your headset
Food pedal, hee hee. Mine's an Infinity...
I've used a Dictaphone foot pedal, too, but it came with the Dictaphone. Try searching on E-bay for foot pedals or Infinity foot pedals.
Get an Infinity USB pedal from transcriptiongear.com or the Transcription warehouse. I think
Infinity USB pedal and Express Scribe software. sm
You may need to install an additional file to play .dss files.

This setup works for me.
I think your Infinity foot pedal has iNet software
set up so it will not play with Express Scribe (I had the same problem). I ended up buying a new Infinity foot pedal off ebay for $65 including shipping and it works fine on Express Scribe and WinScribe. Good luck!
Bought Infinity foot pedal 9 pin and works with Expresscribe.
Specifically what foot pedal did you buy and why can't Expresscribe help you if you bought it from them?
I had found an earlier post that said Infinity would work with InScribe, but sm
I don't think the poster knew about the most recent upgrade.

I had also read about the start/stop pedal being frustrating due to it not stopping immediately. I did find one at Dictran that said exclusively for InScribe, but there are two types there, so that was also confusing!

Is there ONE pedal I can buy that will work with ALL platforms? And where do I shop for a pedal?
Help getting wav pedal to work

I ordered a new Olympus RS25 pedal off of ebay, but am not sure how to get it to work with the express scribe program.  Please help if you have any clue.

The pedal did not come with any software and the lady said it should automatically work with Express scribe, maybe I am not doing something right



Me too! Only wish I could work the pedal with my
Big fuzzy bunny slippers.
I could never get the pedal to work!
I have a foot pedal that is plugged into a USB gameport adapter. How hard was that supposed to be? Yeah right.
I ended up downloading Transcription-Buddy, which is a free download and then downloaded NCH Swift Sound - sound Switch converter to change them over to wave files or whatever it was I could not open. This also was free. If you get it downloaded
Go under view and options and over on the right to foot control and I ended up using the Microsoft PC joystick selection.



foot pedal---any one will work I think, SM
I type on the Dictaphone Transnet platform and have two pedals and they both work. I am not sure the brand, but they are nothing particular. One is a USB and the other is a 9-pin. I am using the 9-pin right now.
Did your foor pedal work
with Real Player?
Getting foot pedal to work (sm)
Does anyone have advice for getting a foot pedal to work for downloaded internet files.  I have plugged this into the USB port but my computer is not recognizing it.  Does having an ipod and its components installed/downloaded affect the foot pedal.  TIA
how do you work the foot pedal?
this looks cool! :P

how do you compare your lph with this versus a regular keyboard?

I got my foot pedal to work




The only steps you must follow are 14-16 to get the Footpedal working with InScribe.


After jobs have downloaded, click on Options Menu and select "Separate Play and Pause".


15. On Options Menu, select "Set Actions".
16. For the F9 key, you will see "Save". Drop down the list next to the F9 key and select "Pause". The actions are in alphabetical order so you should scroll up. Now select "Pause" and press OK or Close.

Help! Can get foot pedal to work

I have started a new job with Landmark but cannot get my two foot pedals to work with Bayscribe.  Could someone please help me!

Thanks in advance!

Foot pedal will not work
Sorry, I am just so upset because I need this job and neither of my 2 foot pedals seem to work with Bayscribe and in trying to get it to work I think I may have messed up the driver.  Any help would be appreciated!
The files need to be associated with a player for pedal to work.
Foot pedal will not work with Bayscribe

Thank you so much.  I believe we did this but for some reason it does not work.  Have been at this all day and I am exhausted from trying to figure out the problem.  Could you tell me what the difference is between a VEC USB foot pedal and a USB foot pedal.  That may be the problem,although both foot pedals have worked with other "tests" with other companies so I am just confused why it will not work with Bayscribe.

Again, thanks so much!



I put a heating pad in front of my pedal on low. Socks don't work 4 me.
No! And boy do I know where you're coming from! I tried to get the Olympus pedal to work, but..
wound up pulling my hair out instead.  They don't make it easy on us, do they?!?!? 
I also struggled with the trying to get the foot pedal to work so I used my keyboard.

Honestly, it was not a long test and was easy to do just using the mouse etc..It was taking longer to figure out how to use the footpedal feature than doing the actual test.

Anyone know if a pedal with Dictaphone adapter will work with ExpressScribe?

Thanks !!!


The plug is for the monitor, pedal wouldn't work there. NM
Will Olympus foot pedal work with Express Scribe? TIA


If is difficult to work in a recliner and push a foot pedal. It can
be done but creates a strain on your feet/ankles and slows you down.  I work on a picnic table under an awning when the weather is nice, but I'm not able to work as well as I do at my desk because I'm not able to have a keyboard tray and working with my keyboard on the table makes it too high.  I've even tried work in bed using a tray across my lap, but then again you have the problem with pushing the foot pedal.   You could use the keyboard for your function keys but it would really slow you down. 
Lanier Foot Pedal will NOT work with Express Scribe
Sorry to tell you but no a lanier foot pedal from a transcription machine will not work with an wav.player.
Most foot pedals out there are at least 69.00. - (cheapest I found) - and be careful what kind you get - if you have a newer computer - you will want the USB one - (faster, works great)
Anyone use Olympus player/pedal for work files- e-mail me nm
Express Scribe and pedal DO work with InScribe upgrade
That is not the case with me. I just upgraded to 4.91 and am still using Express Scribe and it's working fine. I do have an Infinity USB pedal. I do, however, have Windows XP or ME (I never remember which - XP I think) and not Vista. The tech guy at InScribe said some people have problems with the upgrade of 4.91 and Express Scribe with Vista. They have special directions on their download site for Vista users. Hope this helps someone. The new upgrade looks good, though I've not had a good run with it yet.
Do U keep playing with the ports and the types of foot pedals? An odd pedal might not work, like a
Pedal won't work with Media Player, download Express Scribe. nm
Trying to take a test in Express Scribe and cannot get my foot pedal to work. I dont want to
cause a problem in DQS with the foot pedal either.  Any suggestions.  I have the foot pedal that you use for DQS.  It is an Infinity foot pedal.
This would be just a "regular" 3-pedal pedal and not the Dictaphone pedal. nm
I use an Infinity USB.  Mine doesn't seem that way, but I've used it a long long time.  Maybe it's just because your pedal is new?  I can vaguely remember when I started using the one I use now thinking the same thing you're saying, however.
