If you have not already made recordings in WMA format, check whether your digital recorder allows you a choice of formats. Some of the Olympus recorders, for example, let you record in WAV or MP3, and
HyperTRANSCRIBE or HyperRESEARCH will read either of these formats.
If you have already made recordings in WMA format, you can convert the files from WMA to another format that can be read (WAV, MP3, AIFF, etc.). There are many conversion programs out there, depending on your platform. We suggest a Google (or you favorite search engine) search for audio or video file format converters.
If you're using OS X, there is an add-on you can download called Flip4Mac that will let QuickTime read WMA and WMV files. (This add-on isn't available for Windows.) The download is available at <http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/flip4mac.mspx>. Once you've downloaded this and installed it, all Quicktime-enabled applications will be able to use WMV and WMA - including HyperTRANSCRIBE and HyperRESEARCH. (There is one trick - when you click the "Media File" button in HyperTRANSCRIBE, you'll need to hold down the Option key at the same time. This will let you select WMA or WMV files.)
