    What's a good foot pedal I can get for my computer? I plan to use it for transcribing (a button I can press for pause, play, and rewind without taking my fingers off the keyboard) in OS X, but it would be really nice if the foot pedal could also be used for computer games in Windows (foot-based buttons for chatting with my teammates) through Boot Camp.

    I've never purchased such a peripheral and I'm looking at prices that range from $30 to $130, so I want to know if anybody had suggestions for what's good?

    Thanks!

    I've used one these before:

    You can program it to press virtually any key combo or even have it type a phrase. The software only works with windows but it has some memory on the device that keeps the key combo you program so it will work with anything that supports a generic usb keyboard once programmed. It'll only keep one program at a time so if you needed different key combos for different applications you'd have to either buy multiple or constantly reprogram it.
