Abstract:     A method and system for improving the speech command recognition accuracy of a computer speech recognition system uses event-based constraints to recognize a spoken command. The constraints are system states and events, which include system activities, active applications, prior commands and an event queue. The method and system is performed by monitoring events and states of the computer system and receiving a processed command corresponding to the spoken command. The processed command is statistically analyzed in light of the system events and states as well as according to an acoustic model. The system then identifies a recognized command corresponding to the spoken command.

We claim:     1. In a computer system for speech recognition operating at various states and running a program to perform various events, a method for recognizing a spoken command, comprising the steps of:
  • monitoring at least one of said events and states;
  • receiving a processed command corresponding to said spoken command;
  • analyzing said processed command according to at least one acoustic model to identify a probable acoustic match;
  • analyzing said processed command to identify a probable context match using a statistical model to analyze at least one of said events and states; and
  • providing a recognized command based on said probable acoustic and statistical context matches.
