The oral entry of texts (dictation machine) remains an important potential field of application for automatic speech recognition. The RFIA group of CRIN / INRIA has been investigating this research area for the French language during the past ten years. We propose in this paper a general presentation of the present state of our MAUD system which is based upon four major interacting components: an acoustic phonetic decoder, a lexical component, a linguistic model and a user interface. Keywords: dictation machine, linguistic model, blackboard
