InqScribe directly supports most USB foot pedals. While we can’t guarantee that InqScribe will work with every USB foot pedal on the market, we are continually adding to our list of confirmed compatible foot pedals. 

If you have a pedal from another manufacturer, please download InqScribe (it’s free to try!) and test out your pedal. Does it work? Are you having issues? Let us know by sending an email to We'll use your feedback to update this list.

Unsupported Foot Pedals 

These pedals are known to NOT work with InqScribe: 

  • ECS FPAE USB -- This is a specialized pedal designed to work ONLY with Express Scribe. It does not work with InqScribe. 
  • Olympus -- Olympus pedals uses a proprietary method of communication, and as such, may not be used with any non-Olympus transcription software.
  • Philips -- Specifically, users have reported issues with the Philips LFH2310 foot pedal. 
  • Any serial-port based foot pedal -- Simply adding a USB adapter to a serial port-based pedal will not make it work with InqScribe. What is important is not whether you plug the pedal into a USB port, but whether the pedal can register itself with the operating system as an available input device.
