Abstract:     A method for enabling dictation into a speech application from an audio-only interface, in accordance with an inventive arrangement, can include the following steps beginning with creating a dictation template with a plurality of named dictation fields and respective audio prompts identifying each of the dictation fields by a respective name. Second, the template can be opened in response to a command spoken through the audio-only interface. Third, a first one of the audio prompts corresponding to a first one of the dictation fields can be transmitted through the audio-only interface. Fourth, dictation can be accepted into the first one of the dictation fields through the audio-only interface. Fifth, a subsequent one of the dictation fields can be opened in response to another command spoken through the audio-only interface. Sixth, a subsequent one of the audio prompts corresponding to the subsequent one of the dictation fields can be transmitted through the audio-only interface. Seventh, dictation can be accepted into the subsequent one of the dictation fields through the audio-only interface. Finally, each of the fifth, sixth and seventh steps can be repeated until the dictation is complete.

What is claimed is:     1. A method for enabling dictation into a speech application from an audio-only interface, comprising the steps of:
  • (a) generating a visual user interface for creating an audio template with a plurality of programmable named dictation fields and respective audio prompts identifying each of said programmable dictation fields by a respective name;
  • (b) opening said audio template in response to a command spoken through said audio-only interface;
  • (c) accepting a command specifying a dictation field name, said command spoken through said audio-only interface;
  • (d) accessing a dictation field in said audio template, said dictation field corresponding to said specified dictation field name;
  • (e) transmitting through said audio-only interface an audio prompt corresponding to said accessed dictation field; and,
  • (f) accepting dictated speech through said audio-only interface, converting said dictated speech into text, and inserting said text into said accessed dictation field.
