Human factors and dialogue design issues are described with reference to computer interfaces which accept only speech input and provide only auditory feedback. The use of a syntax to switch between vocabulary subsets in the course of speech recognition is discussed. Recommendations for design of auditory interfaces are made, with particular reference to dialogue design and to error prevention and correction. Keywords: Automatic speech recognition (ASR), Auditory interface, Dialogue design
