Waveform Audio File Format: a format for storing digitized sound recordings
The Waveform Audio file format is a creation of Microsoft Corporation. The WAV format is the first standard audio file with high-quality sound. It contains sounds, sound effects, voice recordings, and music tracks. The Waveform Audio file format is currently considered outdated. The main reason for its obsoletion is the fact that files of this type are characterized by a large size. The greatest advantage of WAV is sound compression without any losses. In this format, samples range from 8 to 16 bits. Waveform Audio files are used as system sounds in the Windows operating system.
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.
