List of the audio/video formats we support for transcription and subtitling:

Audio file formats

  • AAC

    Advanced Audio Coding is a lossy digital audio compression format. Originally was supposed to replace the MP3 format, as it offers higher sound quality at the same bit rate. Read more on how to convert AAC to text.

  • DSS

    Digital Speech Standard developed in 1994 to store voice audio data in a highly compressed format. Used primarily for digital dictation recorders, thanks to basic recording functionality and the ability to enter into overwrite mode.

  • FLAC

    Free Lossless Audio Codec is a lossless compression format of digital audio. Files compressed using this format can be reduced by 50 to 70 percent of their original size and contain an identical copy of the original audio data. More about converting FLAC to text here.

  • M4A

    It’s a MPEG-4 audio file encoded with AAC or ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec). Most commonly used for audio content like songs, podcasts, or audiobooks. Convert the M4A file to text.

  • MP3

    MPEG-1/2 Audio Layer III is one of the most popular coding formats for digital audio. Uses lossy data compression. This allows a significant reduction of file size compared to the source audio. More information about converting MP3 to text is here.

  • WAV

    Waveform Audio File Format was developed by IBM and Microsoft and originally was used on Microsoft Windows systems for storing raw and uncompressed audio. Convert your WAV to text.

Video file formats

  • MV4

    This is a video container format developed by Apple, and quite similar to the MP4 format. Originally used in iTunes Store, as such files may be protected by DRM.

  • MOV

    QuickTime File Format that was originally used by QuickTime framework. It can contain multiple tracks, where each of them stores a different types of data: audio, video, or text.

Audio/Video file formats

  • VOB

    Video Object – container format for DVD-Video. Typically can be found on the DVD disc. It’s based on MPEG format, but such files can be encrypted. Larger pieces of multimedia saved in VOB format are split into 1 GB files, to make sure all operating systems can read them.

  • WMA

    Windows Media Audio was developed by Microsoft, which was a part of the Windows Media framework. Primarily used for encoding only audio files, as metadata may include song name, track number, and artist name. Today encoding video in this format is also possible. Convert your WMA to text.
