Converting .ra files to .wav or .mp3

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right section or not, but I'm curious if anyone has any insight into how I can convert .ra format files to .wav or .mp3. I understand that .ra is proprietary (Real Audio), but my problem with playing the files in Real Audio is that I do transcription, and my footpedal does not work in Real Audio. I want to be able to play these files through my Bytescribe WavPlayer which works along with my footpedal, and it just won't work. I've made WavPlayer my default audio player for all types of audio files including .ra, and they still won't play.

Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions would be most helpful. I really don't want to have to convert each and every file that I transcribe. It seems like there would be a way to override this.

Thanks in advance.

FlexiMusic Wave Editor would render the work of converting real audio files to wave or Mp3.
