Updates on transcription software?

For transcribing recorded discourse/oral history/interview data (not phonetic analysis), what sw is favored now? Are field linguists still using Sound Walker, or have newer tools taken over? Is a corpus-creation tool like EXMARaLDA a better choice for addressing long term goals from the start, including preservation/public access? Especially, given that a non-Latin script (Chinese) might be involved? And, are foot pedal controls compatible? Anything better than the Infinity USB foot control, e.g. with Sound Walker, Sound Writer, and/or EXMARaLDA? Thanks for any tips!
