Start-Stop General Purpose Pedal Power Control System

Foot-pedal tests have been undertaken using a Start-Stop HDP-3S pedal from HTH Engineering Inc.  The software has allowed us to allocate controls as per the original Synote keyboard shortcut accessibility options.  This particular software offers the user the chance to set up any combination of keyboard short cuts to control the multimedia player.
So it is also possible just to use the space bar to stop and nudge back as mentioned in the previous meeting.

By the time of the meeting we would like to be able to not only continue with the user testing with more researchers but also return to our initial interviews and review reaction related to the changes that have been made to the interface in terms of usability and learnability.
