Abstract: A text editor is connected to a speech recognizing unit for editing preferably spoken input text using a display speech. For each text word (including digits), and each punctuation mark that can be recognized and is contained in a dictionary, a token is stored for holding information on character count, capitalization, left and right concatenation of the respective item, and for providing fields for context conditions. For each segment or entity recognized spoken text, a respective character string and associated token is transferred to storage in the editor to allow automatic formatting and correct displaying or printing of the text, including spaces and capitalization where required. Tokens are updated during editing to reflect modifications such as in the beginning of a sentence or in concatenation. Switching to spelling mode is provided for entering single spelled characters in case where a word cannot be recognized or where spelling is desired.

I claim:     1. A system for editing information from a speech recognizing unit that provides coded identifiers of recognized speech segments, characterized in that the editing system includes:
  • dictionary and lookup means having inputs comprising said coded identifiers of speech segments each of which represents a word or punctuation word recognized by said speech recognizing unit, wherein said dictionary and lookup means is responsive to each coded identifier of a speech segment, to furnish for a speech segment a respective character string and a token associated with each character string, each token comprising a character count and concatenation indicia, the character count representing the number of characters in the character string, the concatenation indicia representing whether the character string is concatenated to a preceding or following character string,
  • editing means responsive to character strings and tokens furnished by said dictionary and lookup means, for generating formatted data including correct spacing and capitalization, and
  • display means responsive to said formatted data for displaying the speech segments in standard text form. display means responsive to said formatted data for displaying the speech segments in standard text form.
