"Dragon",... "Talk to" and others, use a computer and even type the sponken words after placing them in the word processor. The program must be trained for each voice, and then can recognise your voice after much class.

No thats a lot of work, making interfacing to a RC module out the back of a computer. It could be done.

I'm believe that most of the successful voice recognition software uses a time-domain analysis.<p>For an example of a cheap boars that recognizes a few commands, goto...<p>SensoryInc.com

Radio SHack had a voice-recognition chip ten years or more ago, speaker independent. Only had commands like "stop", "go", "turn left", "right turn", etc. I bought two of the chips. Know anyone with real old RS stock???

Jameco has some voice recognition kits. I believe Radio shack might still have one....<p>For the RC interface you could tap into the pot connections on an existing radio.
