Other supported audio file formats

  • AAC

    Advanced Audio Coding is a lossy digital audio compression format, which you can upload to the audio to text converter. Originally this file format 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.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is an MP3 file?

    MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) is a technology and format for compressing a sound sequence into a small file. This preserves the original level of sound quality when it is played. MP3 files with the file name suffix of “.mp3” are available for downloading from a number of Web sites.
    There are two programs you need to create MP3 audio files. The first program is called a ripper. This program helps you get a selection from a CD onto your hard disk. The second program is called an encoder. This program converts the selection into an MP3 file. Most people, however, simply download MP3s from someone else and play them.
