I was inspired by this http://vimeo.com/30649822 It appears he written a program using kinect to for mic input and it executes various commands.

Is there an existing program i may use which uses a standard mic?

Are you looking for a program like Dragon NaturallySpeaking? Note that Windows 7 contains a speech recognition feature as well. –  DragonLord Oct 22 '11 at 17:35

You could try e-Speaking application to control the computer. But it wont speak with you like Glados, the application uses Windows default voice (Microsoft Sam etc).

You didn't specify an OS, so I assume Windows. From Windows Vista on, there is built-in speech recognition. You will need a microphone, obviously. Then, go to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Speech Recognition

And choose "Set up Microphone" to train the recognition software to your voice. I believe it will give you a basic tour of the speech recognition features thereafter and make the necessary adjustments to start speech recognition after login.

If not, you can always go to "Start Speech Recognition" and then nicely ask for help ;)
