Tricky. You need speech recognition and compare the text 9as the vampyre has already pointed out). Speech recognition needs training to be good so such a system can never be accurate unless it is people who have used the equipment apriori. Hardy to do with total strangers. You can rest Osama..

for a fixed vocab it could be made to work. Ex: president,bomb,explode,meeting,kill and such like
I have made a word rcognition system which works on taking
the speech samples and passing it via filter banks and then
doing the decimation. At the end of it, a 2 dimensional
template is generated which is time averaged (time averaging)
is done only during training phase.

When the actual speech sample comes in, its template is
computed and compared with averaged-reference-template,
the one which has min error is the closest match. 

Matlab and C code available on sale. Check for arithos designs
to get in touch.
