Express Scribe not working on Remote Desktop session (RDP) with local usb foot-pedal

Recommended Posts

As a setup for working for home I now have a VPN link to the office and am trying to use Express Scribe with a foot pedal through the RDP session.

 

The foot pedal is not being recognised despite me ticking to extend plug-and-play devices through the RDP session.

Is this a supported use? Do I need to do something else to get this to work?

Has anybody got this to work?

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately. that won't work. If your pedal is connected to your local machine, Express Scribe on the remote computer won't recognize it.

I would advise you to try software like USB Network Gate, which has a 14 day trial version. You can test whether this decision will help you or not.

I use it for a 3D mouse in an RDP session and there were no problems.
