Abstract:     In a computer system having a word processing application adapted for speech recognition, a method and system to propagate corrections in dictated text. in response to a first user command, a first error word is selected to be corrected from a word processing file containing dictated text. The error word is replaced by a correct word selected by a user. The system subsequently searches the dictated text contained in the document fie in response to another user command to locate a second or subsequent error word that is a close acoustic match to the first error word. The second or subsequent error word may then be replaced using a word selected from an alternate word list.
