We propose a method to recognize human speech without the restriction that the speaker should be close to the microphone for the multiple modal interface. This method has the following features: 1) to control the microphone directivity for improvement of S/N ratio by using the speaker's position estimated by the result of gesture recognition, 2) to compose the impulse response of the transfer characteristic between speakers and microphones into reference data of the recognition system. We describe the active microphone method in detail, and show its effectivity through several experiments. Then, we discuss the results
