Abstract

An advanced Speech Recognition System for windowing systems permits a user to dictate without requiring immediate correction. This text is held in a window to permit correction until the user is satisfied and then transferred to the target application. This is screen 'real-estate' intensive.

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

Dictation Preview Window

      An advanced Speech Recognition System for windowing systems
permits a user to dictate without requiring immediate correction.
This text is held in a window to permit correction until the user is
satisfied and then transferred to the target application.  This is
screen 'real-estate' intensive.

      The User Interface to preserve this "real-estate" is to permit
direct dictation into the application using a small preview window as
a buffer.  This window contains a selectable number of dictated
words.  If the dictation is 100% accurate, or the user does not care
about introducing minor errors to his dictated text, the use may
continue to dictate with the text appearing directly in the target
application after it passes through the preview window.

      If the user wants to stop dictation, re-dictate a word, or
adapt the decoder, the user may interact with the dictation preview
window by voice, mouse, or keyboard to carry out his intended action
on the text still in the window.

      It is important to note that no adaptation of the dictated text
occurs without intervention through the preview window.
