Abstract:     A method for providing voice dynamics of human utterances converted to and represented by text within a data processing system. A plurality of predetermined parameters for recognition and representation of dynamics in human utterances are selected. An enhanced human speech recognition software program is created implementing the predetermined parameters on a data processing system. The enhanced software program includes an ability to monitor and record human voice dynamics and provide speech-to-text recognition. The dynamics in a human utterance is captured utilizing the enhanced human speech recognition software. The human utterance is converted into a textual representation utilizing the speech-to-text ability of the software. Finally, the dynamics are merged along with the textual representation of the human utterance to produce a marked-up text document on the data processing system.
