Have you encountered a problem with a VOC file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a VOC file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your VOC file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The file extension VOC marks voice files in the format of the Soundblaster and Soundblaster Pro sound cards. The VOC audio format supports compression as well as the addition of non-audio data such as silence and loops.
There are two versions of the VOC format. The 'old' format supports only 8-bit audio, mono to 44.1 kHz and stereo up to 22 kHz, the 'new' 8-bit and 16-bit audio.

How to open a VOC file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the VOC file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a VOC file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support VOC files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a VOC file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all VOC files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with VOC there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the VOC file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the VOC file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
