Read a speech signal and change the bit depth from 16 bits to 8 bits

//Caption: Reading a Speech Signal & 
//[1]. Write it in another file
//[2]. Changing the bit depth from 16 bits to 8 bits
clear;
clc;
[y,Fs,bits_y]=wavread("E:\4.wav");
wavwrite(y,Fs,8,"E:\4_8bit.wav");
[x,Fs,bits_x]=wavread("E:\4_8bit.wav");
Ny = length(y); //Number of samples in y (4.wav)
Nx = length(x); //Number of samples in x (4_8bit.wav)
Memory_y = Ny*bits_y;  //memory requirement for 4.wav in bits
Memory_x = Nx*bits_x;  //memory requirement for 4_8bit.wav in bits
disp(Memory_y,'memory requirement for 4.wav in bits =')
disp(Memory_x,'memory requirement for 4_8bit.wav in bits =')
//Result
//memory requirement for 4.wav in bits =   
//     133760.  
// 
//memory requirement for 4_8bit.wav in bits =   
//     66880.
