A method and computer-readable medium convert the text of a word and a user's pronunciation of the word into a phonetic description to be added to a speech recognition lexicon. Initially, two possible phonetic descriptions are generated. One phonetic description is formed from the text of the word. The other phonetic description is formed by decoding a speech signal representing the user's pronunciation of the word. Both phonetic descriptions are scored based on their correspondence to the user's pronunciation. The phonetic description with the highest score is then selected for entry in the speech recognition lexicon.
