Voice Commands

hi all

i need a bit of a hand with a project im doing, how can i make the arduino understand voice commands? i only need it to understand a few commands "Power Up" and "Power Down" for example, anyone know how to get that working?


anyone know how to get that working?

With what hardware? The Arduino alone can't do voice recognition.

It's a crazy thought, but have you considered Googling for 'arduino voice command'?


as you have probably guessed i am new to trying to get voice commands working on the arduino so what shields/external circuity would you recommend?
