An arduino shield containing a microphone and speaker

Hello everyone!

As a part of a project I want to use an arduino shield which has an onboard microphone to listen to the surrounding noise and a speaker to comment on it. Can you help me with that.

Well, if by "comment on it" you want something more than simple square-wave tones or notes you probably want a WAV or MP3 shield.

Thank you. But the type of comment is least of my concerns right now. I want to know if I can use any existing shield or should I make one for my own?

Google didn’t turn up any audio shields that have an integral speaker. Some have speaker drivers but you have to wire it to an external speaker. if you want a speaker on the shield board you will probably have to design it yourself.

You'll have to make your own.

You can get a microphone breakout board and an audio shield, but you'd still need an amplifier to drive a regular speaker. An audio shield can drive "powered" computer speakers.

What's the Arduino for? It seems like you want a PA system.

Thank you for your inputs johnwasser.

DVDdoug, my supervisor demands an arduino compatible shield.
