Unfortunately, the ONLY way to use this device in OS X is with custom-built transcription software, like ExpressScribe Pro (the free version won't work). There is absolutely no way to access it in OS X outside of that software.
Things that don't work:
* Checking the manufacturer's website for an OS X driver. No luck.
* Pedable. Lots of recommendations exist to use this utility - but it's Windows-only.
* ControllerMate. The foot pedal doesn't appear there as a controllable device.
* Karabiner. Same as above.
The problem, I learned, is that unlike every other USB input device in existence (keyboards, mice, trackballs, game pads, etc.), this foot pedal does not register itself an HID input device. OS X certainly *sees* it - and lists it in the USB devices section of the System Report, as an unknown type of USB device called "VEC Foot Pedal" - but has no idea how to communicate with it. Pressing any of the pedals produced no observable response on OS X... unless, presumably, you are using the specially designed software.
Bottom line: This device is "OS X compatible" ONLY with select software packages that communicate with the pedal in a non-standard, proprietary protocol. If you want a foot pedal for any other purpose - such as iTunes - then look elsewhere.
UPDATE 5/12/16 Here we are again....after purchasing yet another one of these from a large online electronics firm that caters to court reporters and has been around for decades, foot control failed after only 3 months. I kind of think these things are poorly made and also old stock, and that possible a broken wire is the issue. I try to keep the cord straight, and don't put the item away after each use. It stays at my desk until next use. It was working fine this morning, then after a break and return to work, it was completely dead. I've had it with Infinity. Three foot pedals since October (7 months) is utterly ridiculous. I just purchased the Universal USB pedal from Amazon. Hopefully a different brand will be better. Will post my experience with it soon.
I had the basic version of Express Scribe (Mac), which does not recognize the pedal, and had to upgrade to the Pro version (which I knew in advance). However, adding a license key doesn't actually give you different software. This is somewhat confusing—Express Scribe recognizes the pedal once the license key is added. Not a complaint about the pedal, just an unintuitive behavior on the part of Express Scribe.
