Speech Recognition

  1. Dec 23, 2008 #1
    Hello , I wanna do a small Speech Recognition Software for my pc , to allow me use my voice to start some programs and execute some commands on shell ( I know there are others but i want to do in on the educational side)

    What subjects i should learn first ? I haven't taken Digital Signal Processing courses yet, however i have knowledge in fourier series and transforms. What should i know to process sound data ?

    Can you describe briefly , thanks !

    As an FYI Dragon Natural Speaking is favored by the Doc and Attorneys I support. It is a big resource hog so a beefy PC is recommended.


    I use Mac Speech on the OS X as well. It is impressive. It is built upon Dragon's engine.

    I know you wanted to write something, but these might save you some time.
