WavPlayer Software

WavPlayer by Bytescribe is an audio player program that allows the user to listen to standard sound files while controlling them with a foot pedal or with hot keys on the keyboard.  A transcriptionist can transcribe dictated reports without taking her hands off of the keyboard. The foot pedal controls the play, pause, rewind and fast forward functions. The software can run in a minimized state so that the transcriptionist is able to type into a word processor on the same computer. The WavPlayer typing software also offers speed and adjustable backspace controls.  The WavPlayer is very popular for medical transcription, legal transcription, law enforcement and transcription schools.

The Bytescribe WavPlayer supports the *.ds2 (DSS Pro) file format created by Olympus recorders.  To play *.ds2 files, you must update the Bytescribe WavPlayer to latest version (6.07 or later).  You can update the WavPlayer software by selecting "Help | Check for Updates" from the WavPlayer menu to download the latest version.


The Orator Digital Dictation System is able to export files into wav or TrueSpeech (compressed wav) format. These files can then be uploaded to an Internet site for download by transcriptionists. The transcriptionists may then use the WavPlayer to control these files.

WavPlayer can play most popular audio file formats.  Common audio file formats include .wav, .dss, .ds2, .vox, .mp3, .msv, .dvf, .wma and many others.  WavPlayer can also play many standard video formats.
