Abstract:     A visual feedback aid, for a computer system performing speech recognition functions, provides indications on a display monitor of the system representing the current state of operation of a system microphone, the current mode of operation of the system in respect to speech, and a string of text representing the system's recognition (correct or incorrect) of commands instantly spoken into the microphone. The indications preferably are located in a reserved area of a display window associated with a currently active application involving speech recognition. The reserved area preferably would be a prominent one, such as the application title bar.

First Claim:
Show all 15 claims
Accordingly, we claim:     1. In a computer system adapted for speech recognition, said system having a speech transducer and display monitor attached thereto, said system having n (>2) different modes of speech recognition usage, said transducer having m (>2) different states of operation associated with individual said modes of usage, and said display monitor being adapted by said system to display windows pertaining to program applications currently active in said system, each said window having an area reserved for displaying information pertinent to speech recognition functions currently being performed in said system, display apparatus comprising:
  • means for adapting said monitor, while a said window is being used relative to a program application and while said system is instantaneously operating in one of said n speech recognition modes relative to said program application, to display first and second symbols in said reserved area of said window; said first symbol uniquely reflecting said instantaneous speech recognition mode of said system, and said second symbol uniquely reflecting the instantaneous state of operation of said speech transducer relative to said program application; said first symbol constituting a unique one of n mode indicating symbols corresponding to said n speech recognition modes of said system; and said second symbol constituting a unique one of m state indicating symbols associated with said m states of operation of said speech transducer; and
  • means responsive to commands spoken by a user of said system for selectively varying said displayed first and second symbols, as said system varies its speech recognition mode of operation and as the operating state of said speech transducer is varied, in order to maintain correspondence between said indicated first and second symbols and instantaneous speech recognition modes and speech transducer states pertaining to the program application in said window.
