Hi Guys,

 

I was wondering if there are plans for (or if it is already available) adding USB redirection

- for Other Supported RemoteFX USB devices , which is available using RDS and MSTSC, and was previously available in Azure RemoteApp.

This was/is required for redirecting footpedals (and some other peripherals)

All tests so far seem to suggest this isn't possible.

@Wrapmaster4500 : Here is the full list of redirections, which I think you were referencing: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/remote-deskto... . 

 

For full clarity, the WVD Windows desktop application supports the same redirections as Remote Desktop Connection in those tables.

@christianmontoyaCheers Christian,

I guess that answers half the question. It would appear that footpedals/controllers are not supported.

Yet, USB devices (ambiguously are). I guess it means only USB devices listed under other devices.

Anyway, I suppose the question becomes, are we likely to see support for footpedals etc.

Still a pretty important piece of kit in the legal sector, and probably in others.

Pretty sure, clients (or at least their transcriptionists) wont be impressed if I start telling them to use Windows dictate instead.

@Wrapmaster4500 : Correct, in general USB devices are supported, though we have added high-level redirection for different classes of devices like cameras, printers, etc.

 

From a Windows device, can you launch Feedback Hub and suggest support of footpedals? I haven't heard too much traffic around it, but would be good to describe the scenario there, then others can upvote it as well.
