  •  However voice compression is something like (1+ / 0-)

    4kbps per second (or half a kilobyte) even with less efficient free and patent unencumbered codecs.  Want to bet that something like Audible's codec can get it down to 3kbps or even 2kbps?

    •  It's been 20+ years since I worked with audio data (0+ / 0-)

      I chose to use files that people can easily relate to. The last sound engineer I talked to was so excited about how he was using 26:1 compression without losing audio integrity. I just barely understand lossy and lossless audio data compression, but I'm sure you're right. This area is progressing along with the rest of computerization technology at a very fast pace.
