I want to develop a matlab code for attendance based on speech recognition. So I want to do speech recognition using matlab.
What should I do? and where should I start?
Just tell me the procedure. I will do the rest.

Based upon your question after this one, it appears that you want to work with "voice recognition" rather than "speech recognition".

If you are willing to use existing libraries and are developing on Windows, you should be able to take advantage of the Microsoft Speech API. There are some submissions on File Exchange that show examples of how you can call into the API: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/?term=microsoft+speech+api

I know the text to speech conversion of Microsoft. Thanks for telling me that. But I also want to convert speech to text. In addition I want to recognize the speech too. How would you do that? Where should I start?

Acutally I made a mistake while asking the question. It's speaker recognition and not speech recognition. Anyway thanks for your response.

I am going to use MFCC and GMM for speaker recognition. Which method is best for speaker recognition?

If I understand correctly, you wish to take attendance using voice recognition.
I wonder, though, how you plan to deal with colds or laryngitis?
I also wonder what age range this would be targeted at? If this would be used for teenagers, then voices can change substantially even from day to day.

In the beginning I am just going to try speaker recognition. If possible I will try attendance using that. Yes, you are right, there will be more practical difficulties.
Thank you for your suggestions Walter Robertson.
