DSS Player Lite

Both Olympus and Philips were jointly responsible for the design

and development of the DSS and DS2 (Digital Speech Standard)

file format.


The DSS and DS2 file formats are high quality and highly compressed voice files — their compression rate equals approximately 1:12 the size of a wav or wma file.  In actual usage, this allows users to record up to a 20 minutes on 1MB (recording in LP mode) compared to 1-2 minutes of dictation (or sound recording) when using wav or wma file format.

Because of it's extremely high quality recording and high compression, the DSS file format is the preferred method for storing and archiving on local, networked and internet storage devices as well as transferring sound files via network server or as email attachments.  Getting voice files to support staff in and away from the office has never been easier.


Using DSS and DS2 files is far more powerful than just a dictation system.


Recorded files can be archived for future reference, embedded within other documents such as Microsoft Word or Excel or used in every day communication with friends and colleagues.  No need to "finger type" emails — just record your commentary, attach and email and click the send button..


For those who wish to share their DSS or DS2 files with others who are not currently using DSS or DS2; the receiver of the file needs only visit our web site to download DSS Player Lite software.  The Player software is Free.  Once installed, files can be archived and opened as many times as desired.  Pick the Player software for the specific operating system installed on your computer.
