We investigate a multimodal interface for organization name input to forms in WWW. The user first utters an organization name in an open vocabulary domain to the system. The system recognizes it with a combination method of isolated word recognition and continuous "base-word" recognition. Word candidates and a base-word lattice obtained by this recognition procedure are displayed on a touch panel. Then the user chooses a sequence or base-words from the candidates by pen touch to construct the desired name and the name is sent to the client. This recognition method performs well in the organization name recognition task, in which a very large vocabulary size and its successive update is needed when using isolated word recognition. Our interface design also elevates users' input ability of organization names.
