Abstract

One method of adaptation for modern Automatic Speech Recognition systems is to associate new spellings with one or more decoded words. The user needs the ability to select one or more decoded words for association with a new spelling up to some limited number of decoded words.

This text was extracted from an ASCII text file.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 100% of the total text.

Selection Sensitive Menus for Correction and Transfer of Dictated Text

      One method of adaptation for modern Automatic Speech
Recognition systems is to associate new spellings with one or more
decoded words.  The user needs the ability to select one or more
decoded words for association with a new spelling up to some limited
number of decoded words.

      The user also needs the capability of deleting, playing and
transferring text to target applications.

      The solution is to take advantage of the fact that there is a
maximum number of decoded, contiguous words which may be presented to
the ASR with a new spelling to build a new pronunciation.

      A selection sensitive menu may then be presented to the user
allowing different functions based on the span of the selection.  For
example, in the IBM Personal Dictation System, when less than 4
decoded contiguous words are selected, a menu is presented which
permits selection of alternate words or an option to select a dialog
for correction from the keyboard.  When more than 4 decoded words are
selected, a menu is presented for manipulating the text, since
adaptation is no longer reasonable.
