Abstract:     A multiple function graphical user interface for a speech recognition application adapted for generation by a computer programmed with a routine set of instructions, the interface comprising: an activatable icon defining an elongated screen display area, the icon having separately controllable foreground and background displays substantially coextensive with the display area; the background display being substantially fully changeable in response to user speech into a microphone having at least two states; text being displayable in the foreground display across substantially all of the display area; and, activation of the icon invoking a function related to the speech recognition application. A border can be selectively displayed around the elongated screen display area for indicating whether the speech application is in a navigation mode or a dictation mode.

What is claimed is:     1. A computer programmed with a routine set of instructions stored in a physical medium for generating a multiple function graphical user interface for a speech recognition application, comprising:
  • means for displaying an activatable icon having a border defining an elongated screen display area within said border, said icon having separately controllable foreground and background displays substantially coextensive with said display area, said foreground display superimposed on said background display;
  • means for changing substantially all of said background display in response to variations of the volume of user speech into a microphone having at least two states;
  • means for displaying text in said foreground display across substantially all of said display area; and,
  • means responsive to activation of said activatable icon for invoking a function related to said speech recognition application.
