Abstract:     A method for configuring an audio interface for a speech recognition application in a computer system comprises the steps of: (a) determining from a data storage registry of said speech recognition application whether a microphone operatively associated with said computer system has been previously successfully set up for operation with said speech recognition application; (b) displaying a first graphical user interface having a first user activatable icon for setting up said microphone and a second user activatable icon for adjusting an audio recording level for said microphone; (c) in the event said microphone is not registered as having been previously successfully set up, altering said second icon in appearance and disregarding attempted activation of said second icon; and, (d) in the event said microphone is registered as having been previously successfully set up, respectively initiating said setting up of said microphone and said adjusting of said audio recording level responsive to activation of said first or second icons respectively. The method can further comprise the steps of: (e) setting up said microphone responsive to activation of said first icon in any one of steps (c) and (d) in conjunction with displaying at least one additional graphical user interface; and, (f) redisplaying said first graphical user interface as recited in step (b).

What is claimed is:     1. A method for configuring an audio interface for a speech recognition application in a computer system, comprising the steps of:
  • (a) determining from a data storage registry of said speech recognition application whether a microphone operatively associated with said computer system has been previously successfully set up for operation with said speech recognition application;
  • (b) displaying a first graphical user interface having a first user activatable icon for automatically guiding a user through a programmed procedure for setting up said microphone and a second user activatable icon for automatically adjusting an audio recording level for said microphone;
  • (c) in the event said microphone is not registered as having been previously successfully set up, altering said second icon in appearance and disregarding attempted activation of said second icon; and,
  • (d) in the event said microphone is registered as having been previously successfully set up, respectively initiating said procedure for setting up of said microphone and said adjusting of said audio recording level responsive to activation of said first or second icons respectively.
