Frequently Asked Questions for Digital Speech Standard File (*.DSS)

What is a DSS file?

Digital Speech Standard (DSS) files are a proprietary compressed digital audio file format that stores voice audio data in a highly compressed format that allows very basic recording and playback options (record, play, rewind, fast-forward, etc.) as well as insert and overwrite mode (extremely useful for dictation and stop and go recording). DSS is a format that’s designed for spoken words and optimized for human speech. It is sometimes known as the MP3 for speech, but it is highly compressed and optimized for the smallest filesize possible. DSS was created by the International Voice Association in 1994. It is commonly used on older digital dictation recorders made by Olympus, Philips, and Grundig Business Systems. However, modern voice recording equipment does use higher quality, larger files.
