Note

  • The SpeechLive web player can play back DS2 files in unencrypted format only. If you want to play back encrypted DS2 files or dictations in the legacy DSS format, please use SpeechExec Pro Dictate or SpeechExec Pro Transcribe software and connect it to your SpeechLive profile.

  • MP3 files can be encoded as CBR (Constant Bit Rate) and VBR (Variable Bit Rate) as well, but the SpeechLive web player supports the playback of CBR-encoded MP3 files only, that is, playback is not fully supported with VBR-encoded files. For more information on CBR and VBR bit rates, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_bitrate.
