  • 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.

    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.
