    Before you buy an expensive foot pedal, practice with the hot keys in the transcription software for awhile. A foot pedal is only an absolute necessity for a few obscure programs – most of them work just fine with the function keys on your standard computer keyboard 😉

    Then after awhile or after a few jobs you can switch to a foot pedal if you want to use one or if a company you want to apply with requires a certain software.

        No problem. I’ve been transcribing for more than 12 years now and I don’t even own a foot pedal 😉
