Do you need a foot pedal & software for Transcription work

You have many options available to get started with digital transcription and there are many choices when choosing digital transcription foot pedals.

Many professional transcriptionsist in medical or legal fields   highly recommend getting a foot pedal.  A foot pedal will instantly increase your transcription speed by controlling the playback with your feet, leaving your fingers free to type.  Buying a foot pedal separately and using free software (like the free version of Express Scribe) is the cheapest option to get started.

Buying a bundle (foot pedal and software combination) is your most economical option.

You can buy a bundle that includes a foot pedal and professional software (and some bundles include headsets). Professional software supports most audio formats than free software. The big advantage of getting a bundle is that you are sure that the software will work with the foot pedal.

Here are some options
