What kind of prerecorded audio files can I use with Voice API?


Which file types can I use for prerecorded audio with the Voice API?

Applies To

  • Voice API
  • Prerecorded Audio


You can use a prerecorded audio file in wav, mp3, ogg, oga, or r16 format. If the audio file included in a Voice API call is not playing, it is very likely due to an encoding incompatibility.

While all formats of mp3, ogg, oga, and r16 should be supported, only the following is supported for wav:

  • Unsigned 8 bit PCM
  • Signed 16 or 24 bit PCM
  • U-law or A-law encoding
