Digital Speech Standard
Developed by the International Voice Association, this is a standardized file format for digitized speech. Digital Speech Standard files store information in a high-compression format. You can record an insert or overwrite the sound; the file can also be filled with metadata. This format offers two modes: “Overwrite” and “Enable”. Digital Speech Standard allows for creating voice files suitable for sending via e-mail. This format is powered by IBM ViaVoice software, which enables speech recognition.
AIFF: a high-quality audio file
This format first emerged in the late 1980s as a development of Apples specialists. It is a standardized format for storing audio data. AIFF files are not compressed, which is why they are larger than mp3. The audio file contains samples and loop information. It is most often used by qualified musicians who need high-quality sound. One minute of audio in the AIFF format requires 10 megabytes of disk space. The encoding process excludes data loss, which makes this format similar to WAV.
