There is no technical reason why the user cannot be selected from a
database of previously trained users, using pattern matching techniques
for authentication. However, notwithstanding the fact that signal
processing technology has advanced to the point where practical voice
identification and authentication systems are already in place, I do not
think that it would be commercially worthwhile to apply the technology
to a voice to text application.
