Current automatic speech transcription sys- tems can achieve a high accuracy although they still make mistakes. In some scenar- ios, high quality transcriptions are needed and, therefore, fully automatic systems are not suitable for them. These high accuracy tasks require a human transcriber. How- ever, we consider that automatic techniques could improve the transcriber?s efficiency. With this idea we present an interactive speech recognition system integrated with a word processor in order to assists users when transcribing speech. This system au- tomatically recognizes speech while allow- ing the user to interactively modify the tran- scription.
