Experimenting with Speech recognition, text to speech and Arduino !!!

You can find the speech recognition module on eBay - Click here

"This module can store 15 pieces of voice instruction. Those 15 pieces are divided
 into 3 groups, with 5 in one group. First we should record the voice instructions 
group by group. After that, you should import one group by serial command before
 it could recognize the 5 voice instructions within that group. If we need 
to implement instructions in other groups, we should import the group first. 
This module is speaker independent. If your friend speaks the voice instruction
 instead of you, it may not identify the instruction."


The Text to Speech is done using the Emic2 module  - Click here

"The Emic-2 was designed by Parallax in conjunction with Grand Idea Studio to 
make voice synthesis a total no-brainer. Simply connect the Emic-2 to a 5VDC 
power supply, connect a speaker to the speaker output (or 1/8" headphone jack)
 and send it a stream of serial text at 9600bps. The module contains all o
the smarts necessary to parse the text into phonemes and then generate 
natural sounding speech, all your controller has to do is send serial strings."
