Useful Links for Voice Recognition

As we have seen more and more applications and devices using voice recognition especially on Android and iOS and because I have been working with applications that use voice recognition I have put together some links that maybe useful for applications using voice recognition. I have used several of these for applications including the project glass inspired work.

µSpeech (muSpeech)

This library is for arduino and provides an interface for voice recognition using the Arduino, which does voice recognition in a way different from most high powered voice recognition methods. It calculates the complexity of the signal is determined by taking the absolute derivative of the signal multiplying it by a fixed point saclar and then dividing it by the absolute integral of the signal. This project is hosted on github so go take a look.
