When most people say “Arduino” they mean an ATmega328 based board like the Uno. This means a simple 8-bit microcontroller with only 2K of RAM. That’s 2,048 bytes of memory to work with. So when someone asked me if the Arduino could do speech recognition, to be honest, I laughed. Then my jaw dropped when I saw µSpeech. A speech recognition library for the Arduino Uno’s ATmega328.
