Opening 2 files

Did your computer fail to open a 2 file? We explain what 2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 2 files.

What is a 2 file?

Files that contain the .2 file extension are most commonly used by various IBM voice recognition applications. These files contain information about the script data and voice type language that are used by the software applications.

In some circumstances, the .2 file extension may also be assigned to screen log files, Unix manual pages and rom image files. When the .2 file extension is used for ROM image files, the .2 files contain a copy of a disc or other information that can be mounted on the user's hard drive. This allows the user to save the ROM image to the hard drive and access the information without the actual disc image being present.

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.
