Octopus USB Controller

Octopus USB Controller

From the makers of the acclaimed "TableMike" and "TravelMike" series of microphones comes this powerful software application that can boost the efficiency of almost every computer user. Octopus USB Controller configures the buttons, keys or levers on any USB Human Interface Device (HID) to convert a push into action on a computer.

What it Does

When configured by Octopus USB Controller, the press of a programmed button, key or lever can do any of the following:

  • Insert boilerplate text (text of your choosing)
  • Initiate any of a series of Windows activities, such as moving forward and backward through open applications, opening the Task Manager, and other common Windows functions/activities
  • Open any application, document, web-page, or folder
  • Emulate any key or key-combination
  • For Dragon users, initiate any Dragon Hotkey or command (including user created commands)
  • If desired, assign separate functions to the push and the release of a button, key or lever
  • Combine an unlimited number of the above functions into a single "script" initiated with a single button, key or lever push

In addition, OUC provides a large and configurable "Microphone Status indicator" to facilitate awareness of the microphone on/off/standby status and extends the software functionality for users of Dragon NaturallySpeaking to allow use of Dragon Template (field navigation commands) in the Premium and Home versions.
