ditto what Scott said. I've processed vocal audio every week for the last 15 years…

We have had this m4a vs mp3 discussion in house for years… the m4a man typically is an audiophile that uses settings that are entirely unnecessary for average listener (we do a lot of voice)… sure, if it were orchestral music… but it's not.  I go ahead and produce an MP3 file of the same file with a *smaller* file size than the m4a file(s) and no one can tell the difference.

Voice is WAY more forgiving of high compression than music, so I would say you're good choosing a different format rather than jumping through hoops trying to accommodate m4a.  Save yourself some headache.
