What is a DS2 file?
Audio file created in the Digital Speech Standard Pro (DS2) format, a highly compressed audio format developed by Olympus for digital voice recordings; typically contains a recording of human speech that is saved to a recording device's memory card; used for saving personal and professional notes, often by laywers, researchers, and physicians; useful for sending as email attachments because of the highly compressed file size.
DS2 files can be converted to standard .WAV files using DSS Player Pro, a software application included with some Olympus digital voice recorder purchases. DS2 files can also be converted with DSS File Converter from Voelker Software.
Example Olympus devices that create DS2 files includ the DS-2400, DS-4000, and DS-5000.
