Method for Associating Voice Template with Application

      Provided is a convenience for automatically associating a voice
control system template with an application.

      A method is needed for automatically associating the best voice
template with an application so that invocation of the application
will automatically activate the best template.

      Provided is an automatic prompt to a user whenever an
application is terminated while a voice control system device driver
is detected.  The prompt consists of a list of all voice templates
which were used during use of the application throughout time.  The
list may consist of one or more entries.  If no templates were used
during application use, the user is not prompted.  The user may
select an entry from the list, should a prompt be presented.  Upon
selection of an entry, usually the topmost entry (list is ordered
from most recently used to least recently used), the selected
template automatically becomes invoked at subsequent application
usage.  Should the user not desire to select any entries, the user
may escape from the list.  Should the user select an entry,
subsequent invocations of the application thereafter will
automatically make the template active and the user will be notified
it is being loaded immediately before the application initializes.
