Frequently Asked Questions for MP3 Audio File (*.MP3)
What is a MP3 file?
MP3 files are one of the most common audio file formats. Almost every player on any platform can open an mp3 file. The MP3 file format is a compressed file format with an intentional loss of audio quality. However, the loss should be negligible for the typical user. It was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and uses ‘Layer 3’ audio compression. The audio compression preserves the audio within a normal human’s hearing range, while discarding unnecessary information outside of that range. MP3 files are usually used to store music and audiobooks with ‘near-CD quality sound’ (aka Stereo at 16-bit), but due to the great compression algorithm, the file size is around 1/10th of the WAV or AIF file equivalent. The quality of an MP3 file depends largely on the compression bit rate. Common bit rates are 128, 160, 192, and 256 kbps. And higher bit rates result in higher quality files that also require more disk space. MP3 files are easily handled and transcribed by Sonix, please try to upload higher bitrate quality audio files which will improve your transcript’s accuracy.
