Abstract:     Provided is an improved graphical user interface method and system to be utilized with voice input. The method and system remove a voice activated commands dialog box when a voice input system is not active. The method and system achieve the forgoing objects by (1) sensing whether a voice input system is active or inactive, which can be achieved by determining whether a voice input program is set to actively receive voice input in response to a change of state of a voice input device (such as a microphone); and (2) removing a voice activated commands dialog box from prominent display within a graphical user interface if the voice input system is sensed inactive.
