File extension .DSS
The DSS file extension (or DSS) stands for Digital Speech Standard and is an uncompressed digital audio format developed to record, store and distribute voice data. It is typically the preferred format of digital voice recorder such as the Olympus Digital Voice Recorder, but has also been used in other devices such as the Philips Digital Pocket Memo. The DSS file type is primarily found in Windows-based PCs and can be used to record a wide variety of audio content from speech and conversations to music.
The Digital Speech Standard is highly compressed and offers good sound quality while keeping the total size of each recorded file small. This makes it ideal for sending digital audio across networks or over the internet. It can also be encoded using different bitrates, allowing for specific sound quality requirements to be met. Additionally, DSS files have no DRM protection and are compatible with both Windows and Mac OS platforms. Other file extensions that are similar to DSS include WAV, WMA, MP3, AAC, and AIFF.
The DSS format is widely used in professional dictation systems such as the Philips Voice Tracer Professional, used by many transcription services. Other applications that allow users to open and edit DSS files include multimedia editing tools like Audacity, multi-track recording software such as Adobe Audition, and media players like VLC Media Player. DSS files can also be easily converted into other file formats like WMA, MP3, and WAV using file conversion utilities such as NCH Switch Audio File Converter.
Programs for WINDOWS system
Programs for MAC system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .DSS) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .DSS extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .DSS file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .DSS extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .DSS extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .DSS file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .DSS file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .DSS file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .DSS file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .DSS file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
