Cheap? USB Foot pedal
#1
I am looking for a USB page turner pedal to use as a backup in case my AirTurn bluetooth starts to play up (it has once)

I have found this on the internet.

There are plenty of these switches on EBay for about £7.

I use an Android tablet, and can use the USB adaptor to plug it in.

I assume the right arrow key would turn a page? (Would only need to turnh one way, no requirement to turn page back).

Has anyone used this method, am I likely to hit any problems (not very knowledgeable on tablets)

One of these footswitches will work fine with MS. I use a three pedal version (forward, back and one whose use is to be decided). The one thing you need to keep in mind is that the footswitch needs to be programmed using your PC, it will nothing if you just plug it into your Android tablet.

Although you say you only need to go forward, I think you should bite the bite the bullet and purchase at least the two pedal version, so that you do have the ability to go back as well. One day you might need it Smile .

Many thanks, I think it is worth a punt for a few quid.

I have bought one of these and it works fine.

However, after the initial press it takes two presses to turn the page after that.

Not sure why (it is set to operate on right arrow).

I am wondering if it would work if I set it to the Tab key instead?

I think this has to a be a problem with the settings - it works fine for me. Have you had a play around with the pedal settings in the MS options?

I tried all sorts of combinations in the MS Settings, but nothing made any difference. Will just have to live with it.

How odd - not had that problem myself and I can't offer any other ideas. Maybe Mike can come up with a solution.

You changed the "bounce" "debounce" settings in Mobilesheets and it didn't help?

Is the pedal bluetooth or connected via USB?

Yes, I disabled the debounce but it made no difference.

It is connected direct via USB into my tablet.

It does the same on two other tablets, don't know why?
