Which Digital Formats can we transcribe?


Planet Diva can process a range audio and video digital files for digital transcription. PLEASE NOTE: If the digital format you are currently using is not listed below we can probably sort something out, it will just take a bit longer that’s all! Please give us a quick call if you have any issues.

Some recording devices save files in their own little ‘language’ which can make things problematic! Check any software that came with the recording device – there is always an option to ‘convert to’ or ‘save as’ one of the popular formats below (e.g. Mp3, WAV, MWA).
