Pintu --

Speex is an audio codec that can encode and decode audio for transmission
over network (or for storage).
Specifically, it's called speex because it is tailored to work well at
encoding speech at small bitrates.

Speex does not do speech recognition or text to speech.
You may wish to look at CMU's speech page:
http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/(look at Sphynx).
And I'll tell you - It is much more difficult (and processor intensive) to
to speech recognition than it is to to speech synthesis (though both are
quite difficult).
