I want to use Dictatation in order to dictate a text that I listen in a headset. I would like to be able to pause and go back/forward without switching between the windows of the text editor and of the player.

Using global keys for this would be a way. I already have the button f8 for pausing, but what about back and forward?

Is there a player with such global keys?


You can use Automator to create Services that control the playback of QuickTime Player, then assign keyboard shortcuts to the Services in System Preferences.

The Automator Service: Play/Pause

Keyboard Shortcut in System Preferences: Keyboard Shortcut
