I am running Lubuntu 15.04 and I am looking for a Speech Recognition Software that allows me to open and run files with my voice. One where I can customize like if I say, cause I want Speech Recognition for a Knight Rider Kitt car, I want to be able to talk to the car. Like if I say, "Hey Kitt". It will open an audio file and play the audio file i chose for it to open when I said "Hey Kitt". Any suggestions?
