Abstract: A method for proofreading text generated by a speech application can include the following steps beginning with the step of finding all closed-class vocabulary words in the text. Subsequently, the method can include the step of automatically highlighting at least some of the closed-class vocabulary words in the text during proofreading. Additionally, the highlighting of the closed-class vocabulary words can include either highlighting all of the closed-class vocabulary words, highlighting the closed-class vocabulary words based on a perplexity filter, or highlighting the closed-class vocabulary words based on a language model enhancement filter.
