Abstract:     A method for enabling user selectable input devices for dictation or transcription in a speech application, comprising the steps of: establishing a registry of dictation and transcription device descriptions, each of the descriptions including a device specific image, a device specific set of device-connecting instructions and a device specific list of audio configuration parameters; building dynamic tables containing information retrieved from the registry; establishing and storing a plurality of enrollments, each of the enrollments representing a speech file of user specific training data corresponding to at least one of a specific audio input device and a specific audio environment; and, generating GUI display screen using the information in at least one of the dynamic tables to enable user selection any input device in the registry for which one of the enrollments is available, for use as a dictation or transcription input to the speech application.
