How to Email a WAV File

by Alizarin Black

Waveform Audio File Format (WAV, WAVE) is an audio file compatible with Microsoft Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems. WAV files are larger than other audio formats such as MP3s and WMAs, but users have the ability to email a wave file to their friends, family or another person. Email clients have a feature called an "attachment," used to transfer documents, videos, music and images via email.
