Query:   Hello Linguists,

We have corpora consisting of good-quality oral recordings on standard
audio cassette, along with identical versions on cd.

In order to transcribe the material efficiently, we are looking for
footpedals to control the rewind, ff, stop, and play functions. The
only problem so far is that ''conventional'' transcribers--typically used
in the medical secretarial environment--are not intended for fine
analysis. Can you recommend either footpedals that connect with the
computer and work with cd rom, or a professional-linguist quality
cassette transcriber with footpedals?

Many thanks, and I will summarize to the list.
