Abstract:     A method for configuring an audio interface for a speech recognition application in a computer system comprises the steps of: (a) displaying a first graphical user interface (GUI) prompting a user selection of an audio input device between: a headset having a microphone and at least one microphone not forming part of a headset; (b) in the event of the user selecting the headset having the microphone: (1) displaying a second GUI for prompting a user to connect the headset, the second GUI including a picture of a headset; (2) displaying a third GUI illustrating proper placement of the headset and the microphone, the third GUI including the picture of a headset; and, (3) displaying a fourth GUI for adjusting audio recording volume, the fourth GUI including the picture of a headset; and, (c) in the event of a user selecting the microphone not forming part of a headset: (1) omitting displaying the second and third GUIs as in steps (b)(1) and (b)(2) respectively; (2) displaying a fifth GUI for prompting the user to connect the microphone not forming part of a headset, the fifth GUI including a picture of a microphone not forming part of a headset; and, (3) displaying the fourth GUI as in step (b)(3), as modified to include the picture of a microphone not forming part of a headset instead of the picture of a headset.

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) displaying a first graphical user interface prompting a user selection of an audio input device between: a headset having a microphone and at least one microphone not forming part of a headset;
  • (b) in the event of the user selecting said headset having said microphone:
    • (1) displaying a second graphical user interface for prompting a user to connect said headset, said second graphical user interface including a picture of a headset;
    • (2) displaying a third graphical user interface illustrating proper placement of said headset and said microphone, said third graphical user interface including said picture of a headset; and,
    • (3) displaying a fourth graphical user interface for adjusting audio recording volume, said fourth graphical user interface including said picture of a headset; and,
  • (c) in the event of a user selecting said microphone not forming part of a headset:
    • (1) omitting displaying said second and third graphical user interfaces as in steps (b)(1) and (b)(2) respectively;
    • (2) displaying a fifth graphical user interface for prompting the user to connect said microphone not forming part of a headset, said fifth graphical user interface including a picture of a microphone not forming part of a headset; and,
    • (3) displaying said fourth graphical user interface as in step (b)(3), as modified to include said picture of a microphone not forming part of a headset instead of said picture of a headset.
