Abstract

Disclosed is an algorithm that will restore audio settings for a speech recognition application to provide an optimal audio environment. This algorithm takes pre-determined audio settings and saves them in a database to allow the user to have good speech recognition at their next speech recognition session without the overhead of setting the gain through a gain-setting program. In a typical embodiment the algorithm would work as follows: (1) When a speech recognition application was started it would open a database with an unique identifier for the user (their user id). (2) Stored in their user id database would be a field that tracked the last optimal gain setting for their system. If this field was filled in, the application would go to step 3. Otherwise it would go to step 2a.
