Dictation files can become large files quickly and may become cumbersome to send through work flow systems or emails. This can be especially challenging with older audio formats and with mobile dictation which may lack fast Wi-Fi connections. To address this problem, DSS was developed as an efficient solution with low file sizes that enable quick transfers while still offering excellent playback quality audio playback quality. DSS files are audio files created by Olympus digital dictation recorders (dictaphones) and other similar devices that use the DSS recording format. DSS files employ advanced data compression methods which result in significantly smaller file sizes compared to standard WAV voice files; usually 12-20 times smaller on average!. DSS files provide transcriptionists with additional tools for easier transcription work, including audio length, date/time stamps, priority mark designations and any other details which aid the transcription process. This additional data could include items like audio length, date/time stamps or priority marks that help make transcription more straightforward. Although DSS files may not be widely utilized, they can still be useful tools. If you need to open one on either PC or Mac there are a couple of methods you could try: one is finding an application which supports this format and using that program directly; or using a converter app which converts DSS into more commonly-used audio formats like MP3 or WAV.
Upload a file, click "Convert", and use additional options to quickly modify its contents before downloading the final DSS file after processing has completed.
