What Am I Missing?

I am a rather inexperienced robotics enthusiast, working a small project. In the simplest of terms, I want a voice command to activate 2 DC motors one at a time, and 3 servos one at a time. Therefore, one command will correspond to one direction of movement for each of those 5 components.

For example:

I will say: "forward", the DC motor will spin clockwise
I will say: "back", the DC motor will spin counterclockwise

and so on...

My parts list (2/2/2015):

Arduino Uno - (x1) [microcontroller]
Motor Shield - (x1) [for motor control]
Easy VR Shield 2.0 - (x1) [for voice recognition]
DC motor - (x2), servo - (x3) - [movement]

Any of you experienced guys/girls out there know what else I'll need to make this work?

How is your real time code writing?

Yes. We need you to read the datasheets and reference documentation for all the items listed.

Learn to use those components one by one, only then can you join them together. And read their specs.
