Abstract:     A method for managing a speech application, comprising the steps of: categorizing text from a sequential list of playable elements recorded in a dictation session into segments of only dictated playable elements and segments of only non-dictated playable elements; and, playing back the list of playable elements audibly on a segment-by-segment basis, the segments of dictated playable elements being played back from previously recorded audio and the segments of non-dictated playable elements being played back with a text-to-speech engine. The list of playable elements can be played back without having to determine during the playing back, on a playable-element-by-playable-element basis, whether previously recorded audio is available. The list of playable elements can be simultaneously played back audibly and displayed whether the playable elements are dictated or non-dictated.
