Opening 14 files

Did your computer fail to open a 14 file? We explain what 14 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 14 files.

What is a 14 file?

The 14 file format was developed to store game music data by Ubisoft Entertainment, a game software development group. Created as an audio file format, .14 files are used in Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002. This Ubisoft Entertainment game is a winter sports simulation game that was designed for Windows PCs. These .14 files are normally stored in a folder in the system directory where Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002 is installed.

IBM Voice Type uses the 14 file format for an entirely different purpose. This software is a voice dictation and speech recognition software. Developed as a data file format, these .14 files store data associated with languages scripts that are used by IBM Voice Type. This software was designed for Windows PCs and IBM OS/2 machines.

It's best to leave these .14 files alone. This is to ensure that either Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002 or IBM Voice Type continues to work properly.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
