Claims

1. A method for generating a command to be processed by a voice-controlled electronic device (100), the method comprising:

receiving (S202) a voice input representative of a first portion of a command to be processed by the electronic device (100);

receiving (S204) a selection of content displayed on a screen (108) of the electronic device (100), the selected content being representative of a second portion of the command to be processed by the electronic device (100); and

generating (S206) the command based on a combination of the voice input and the selected content.

2. The method of claim 1 , wherein the command corresponds to a query to a virtual assistant executed on the electronic device (100).

3. The method of claim 1 or 2, wherein the screen (108) is a touch screen and wherein the selection of the content is made by a touch input on the touch screen.

4. The method of claim 3, wherein the touch input corresponds to a sliding gesture covering the content to be selected.

5. The method of any one of claims 1 to 4, wherein, when the selection of the content comprises a selection of text, combining the voice input with the selected content comprises: combining a transcription of the voice input with the selected text.

6. The method of any one of claims 1 to 4, wherein, when the selection of the content comprises a selection of a display region on the screen (108), combining the voice input with the selected content comprises:

performing text recognition on the selected display region to obtain text included therein as selected text; and

combining a transcription of the voice input with the selected text.

7. The method of claim 5 or 6, wherein a language of the transcription of the voice input and a language of the selected text are different.

8. The method of any one of claims 5 to 7, wherein a character set of the transcription of the voice input and a character set of the selected text are different.

9. The method of any one of claims 1 to 8, wherein the voice input includes an instruction to be processed by the electronic device (100) and wherein the selected content corresponds to a parameter associated with the instruction.

10. The method of any one of claims 1 to 9, wherein the selection of the content is received upon failure to correctly transcribe voice input representing the content.

11. The method of any one of claims 1 to 10, wherein, upon recognizing that the voice input representative of the first portion of the command does not represent a full command, the electronic device (100) waits for the selection of the content.

12. A computer program product comprising program code portions for performing the method of any one of claims 1 to 1 1 when the computer program product is executed on one or more computing devices.

13. The computer program product of claim 12, stored on a computer readable recording medium.

14. A voice-controlled electronic device (100) for generating a command to be processed by the electronic device (100), the electronic device (100) comprising at least one processor (102) and at least one memory (104), the at least one memory (104) containing instructions executable by the at least one processor (102) such that the electronic device (100) is operable to perform the method of any one of claims 1 to 11.
