Abstract:     A method for managing a What Can I Say (WCIS) function in an application having a plurality of commands which can be voice activated comprises the steps of: storing a set of substantially all voice activatable commands associated with the application; identifying those of the commands in the set which are displayable by the application; and, in response to a user input, displaying in a graphical user interface (GUI) a subset of the voice activatable commands which are not displayable by the application. Moreover, the method includes displaying in the GUI, in response to a user input, a list of the stored set of substantially all voice activatable commands associated with the application; displaying in the GUI a pull down menu identifying different categories by which the commands can be viewed in the list; and, displaying the GUI with a pull down menu identifying commands that can be performed against a voice command.
