DS2 file is an audio file saved in the Digital Speech Standard (DSS) Pro format, a standard developed jointly by Olympus, Phillips, and Grundig for digital dictation files. It typically contains highly compressed recordings of human speech and is used mainly by legal and medical professionals. DS2 files are of small size and could be easily transferred over the internet.
DS2 files can only be played on certain proprietary applications, including Olympus DSS Player, Philips SpeechExec Pro Transcribe, and Bytescribe WavPlayer. No other media players, such as VLC Media Player and Windows Media Player, can recognize this format currently.
