You can find instructions for the installation and connection of VEC and VPE pedals here
Please also refer to the "Connection and Setup" item on Foot Pedal Control on the Express Scribe Help Manual (Help -> Help Contents) if you have not done so already.
If you are using Game Port pedals check you have installed game port drivers. If you do not have specific drivers for your pedals, you will need to install the Windows generic "2 axis, 4 button joystick" device using the Game Controllers item on the Windows Control Panel.
V-Pedals require USB drivers that are provided on the Windows 2000/XP CD-ROM. When the pedals are first plugged in Windows Plug & Play may ask the user to insert their Windows CD-ROM to locate these. If the user cancels this install process or does not have the Windows CD the pedals will not work when running Express Scribe. Express Scribe must be rerun after the USB drivers are installed from the Windows CD-ROM.
You must select the correct port (ie. COM, GamePort or VEC USB) from Express Scribe Settings.
You must run the Foot Pedal Setup Wizard from Express Scribe Settings.
