Abstract:     A method for correcting errors of a speech recognition application in natural speech recognition of words or phrases represented by characters can include the steps of selecting a character corresponding to an incorrectly recognized spoken word or phrase and observing a list of alternative characters. The method also can include replacing the incorrect character with one of the alternative characters, if the alternative characters correctly represent the incorrectly recognized word or phrase. If none of the alternative characters in the list correctly represents the spoken word or phrase, the step of drawing some features of a character correctly representing the incorrectly recognized word or phrase by moving a cursor can be included. Also included in the method can be the step of updating the list of alternative characters responsive to the drawing step; and, repeating the replacing, drawing and updating steps until a character correctly representing the word or phrase is selected from the updated list. A graphical user interface can respond to keyboard, mouse and voice commands.
