Speech compression codec please

Can someone recommend a good speech compression codec? I am using V 2.1.3

What’s the application? You can do really well with a mono voice file and 32 quality MP3 compression. That has the advantage that everybody can open them in addition to producing small files.


I listen to a lot of audiobooks and just want to make the whole thing speed along faster without sounding like Donald Duck.

Change tempo effect , (which does not change pitch).

without sounding like Donald Duck.

Oh. Time compression. That’s Effect > Change Tempo.


My iPod will do x1, x0.5 and x2 as one of the playback controls. Sometimes I hit it by accident.
