Olympus ds24 dictation pedal
« on: November 28, 2012, 12:57:46 pm »
Can anyone assist in helping me to get a dictation pedal working.  I need a program that will ring read (transcribe) dictation. So the software would have to be able to be controlled by the foot pedal.  The pedal rewinds the wav or other file when pressed left and opposite for right. The middle pedal is for stop start.

Ubuntu 12.04

THANKS

OK, there's no known USB ID's for that device (07b4:0202):
http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids

So I'm afraid even if there were Linux drivers (which there won't be) the system wouldn't recognise the divice, so wouldn't know which drivers to load.

Or the short version = Forget it, aint gonna work :(

@Toonman
Or, you could try your hand at writing a kernel or libusb device driver for it.

Thanks SeZo.

If I only had the time.  :(

Just a common old end user.  I rely on people on this website to hand hold me through problems.   A fine job they do to.  :)
