Abstract:     A method for correcting misrecognition errors comprises the steps of: dictating to a speech application; marking misrecognized words during the dictating step; and, after the dictating and marking steps, displaying and correcting the marked misrecognized words, whereby the correcting of the misrecognized words is deferred until after the dictating step is concluded and the dictating step is not significantly interrupted. The displaying and correcting step can be implemented by invoking a correction tool of the speech application, whereby the correcting of the misrecognized words trains the speech application.
