Abstract The known speech recognition systems have the disadvantage that the user must first activate speech recognition, for example by pressing a button provided for this purpose on the remote control. According to the invention, firstly a simple speech recognition process is carried out and then one or a plurality of more complicated speech recognition processes are carried out. In this case, the simple speech recognition process is largely independent of dialect and speaker but has only a small vocabulary and does not enable recognition of a word order, whereas at least one of the more complicated speech recognition processes is largely dependent on dialect and speaker but has an extensive vocabulary and/or enables recognition of a word order. The simple speech recognition process is advantageously used for switching on one of the more complicated speech recognition processes.
