Frequently asked questions about converting FLAC to text

  • What is a FLAC file?

    FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. It is a file format that preserves the quality of an audio file while reducing its size, which makes it easier to transfer and store. FLAC files are used because it’s usually higher quality compared to other audio files:

    – It doesn’t lose any quality, so you get to listen to high-quality audio without having to sacrifice file space.

    – It supports all major operating systems, so you can access your audio anywhere, on any device.

    – As FLAC files are superior in quality, you’ll be able to take advantage of ASR to convert FLAC to text – with accurate results!
