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.
AU format for reliable data storage
This audio format was developed by Sun Microsystems. It is intended for storing audio files; the file itself consists of three components: the header, the annotation unit, and the audio file itself. What distinguishes this format is the small file size, due to which its sound quality is low. It can be converted into other formats, such as mp3 or MPEG. Although this format is mostly used on personal computers that are powered by operating systems Sun or Unix, AU files can also be opened using other audio players.
