Urgent - What is a .trm file and how can I listen to it?
Hi, a friend recommended me to this forum and said you guys are a great community here, anyway onto the point:

My uncle needs some help with a bunch of files he has of sound recordings that are in the .trm format. I've never heard of this format before, and I tried searching for info for about an hour, and got results and info that led me nowhere and was completely foreign to me.

I need some way to load these .trm files which are supposedly audio recordings so that we can play them back and listen to them. Please reply asap as I need this for tomorrow. Thanks!

from what I read, it's not an audio file...

Without the software, I don't know how to help.

they are court recordings, he is a lawyer

i'm guessing he just got the cd delivered to him. maybe tomorrow i can contact the people he got it from and find out more, but maybe we can figure out what exactly on the net instead.

yeah, everything i've found on the .trm file format has been completely foreign or just not useful. for example, file-ext's entry says 'many programs open this file type, too many to list individually'. that's about as far as i've gotten. i've seen something for like windows 3.x...!?!? pretty bizarre, as these are supposed to be SOUND RECORDINGS...there are 14 items total added together are 45.2 megabytes. so i'm totally baffled.

if anyone has an answer i need it by today, thanks for any help in advance, i'll check again tomorrow.

no idea what this stuff means. could this have been a mixup? or are these really audio files?

Downloads programs above, or try it in the courts. It is easiest.
www.readplease.com is the link for english version.
This program will read text (trm files), and You will hear describe happenings from court.

Interesting. Our courts use FTR (For The Record) which puts actual recordings (sound files) on the CD. I'm not sure of the format-never looked to be honest-but I've heard the results & they're actual sound files, not a text reader. (It's got everything-papers rustling, chairs scraping, etc.) I don't know if these might be ftr files-like I said, I've never looked to see what format it uses, but if they are then the player is free (requires free registration):
