Question: Will an Olympus RS-27 Foot Pedal work with the software packaged with the Olympus AS-2000 Transcription Kit?
No, The Olympus AS-2000 Transcription Kits were packaged with Olympus DSS Player 2002 and an RS-23 Foot pedal. Olympus’s general rule is: Newer hardware is not supported by older software. In the case, an RS-27 will not be recognized with the discontinued DSS Player 2002 software.
Therefore; if your old RS-23 foot pedal stops working, you will need to update your software as well.
