Marking Locations in Material Dictated into a Speech Recognition
System

   Disclosed are several modes of operation for marking text
dictated into a speech recognition system to facilitate moving to
positions chosen by the user as he moves from dictating to
proofreading tasks.

   For operation in a single mark mode, the system is
configured to let the user set only one mark at a time, using a
voice command like "Set Mark" to mark a place in his document and a
command like "Go to Mark" to return to that spot.  If the user has
not set a mark, the system defaults to mark the end of the document.
Whenever the user sets a new mark the old one is deleted.  A command
like "Clear Mark" deletes the mark last set by the user, so that the
user can allow the system to reset it at the end of the document.  In
a first version of this mode, when he jumps to the mark, the insert
cursor is placed after the mark, so that the mark remains in the same
position as new material is inserted below it.  In a second version
of this mode, the insert cursor is placed before the mark, so that
the mark remains at the end of the new material inserted above it.

   For operation in a toggle mode, the user does not set a
mark, the system does.  The mark is set to the previous place the
user dictated, with the previous place being defined as the
beginning of a new series of dictation.  The user either moves the
cursor by voice commands or by positioning the cursor with the mouse
or with the keyboard arrow keys.  The system igno...
