The ‘Accelerator’ wired Foot Control (B) is designed to be left under a desk and comes complete with a 25 metre cable. Direction is controlled by pushing down on the controller moving the script forwards. Reversing is controlled by depressing the controller further and it can have an optional desk mounted keypad attached to enable the presenter to control such things as select story, skip paragraphs, select font, adjust font size, eye-line position and reset the running order (functions depend on the version of WinDigi purchased).

Wireless USB base station (D) allows wireless & wired hand controls to be used to control one prompter so several presenters can control themselves without an operator & also ideal for back-up. Has a range of up to 30 meters (line of sight) both Hand & Foot Controllers can be used wirelessly as they are on different frequencies. If the Foot Control is not being used the local Hand Control controls the software.

Wireless Hand Control (E) gives the presenter the freedom to roam the studio whilst controlling the speed of the prompter. It has 2 buttons with programmable functions which include scroll direction, story selection and page jumping (functions depend on the type of WinDigi purchased). The Wireless Foot Control is ideal where a trailing lead to the presenters’ desk is a problem in the studio
