DigiTel Pedal Magic
Pedal Magic software enables you to control virtually any application program using a foot pedal. It works with Infinity USB or Serial foot pedal and sends ‘hot key’ or macro keystroke sequences to your favorite application program. Pedal Magic runs in the background and sends your application the keystrokes it needs as each pedal is pressed and released… the keystrokes are sent just as if you typed them from your keyboard… just like magic!
- Sends keystrokes at the press of a pedal to your favorite application.
- Instantly switch it to work with up to five different applications.
Pedal Magic also allows you to instantly recall five pedal definitions saving you time and effort when using your favorite programs. For example, you can use Pedal Magic to control your favorite wav player’s Play/Pause, Rewind and Fast Forward functions, or you can use it, for example, to instantly Spell Check, Save As, or Print from your favorite word processor… the possibilities are endless! It can be installed on most Windows based computers and is compatible with Infinity USB and Infinity Serial foot pedals or 100% compatible foot pedals.
The application runs minimized and automatically remembers the last application you choose. To use it… simply run it and then run your favorite application. To set it to work with a different application simply click Pedal Magic on the task bar and then choose a different application from its menu.
- Please note: Your application program must be "in focus" (in other words in the foreground) to receive keystroke sequences from Pedal Magic.
If you want to send DigiTel files to an FTP site, then you can use FTPMagic to send dictation files to an FTP site. Our DigiScribe transcription software can retrieve dictation files from FTP sites. The use of an FTP site allows you to send dictation files easily to one or more remote transcriptionists, or for a transcriptionist to retrieve dictation files when they are traveling.
The menu functions of most application programs can be activated by pressing the "Alt" key on the keyboard plus a letter key or a function key. A menu function which can be activated in this way is usually denoted by an underscore under one character of its name. For example the menu selection for "File" can be activated by pressing "Alt" plus "F".
Application programs may also allow certain functions to be activated by pressing a combination of ‘hot keys’. These applications usually contain a menu with which to configure the combination of keys that activate a particular function. For example a wav player may use the keystroke combination of "Ctrl" plus "Alt" plus "F1" to begin playing a file.
