I think it's better to use a voice recognition software (not a pd 
external) and then make the bridge between the software and pd (with 
shell, python, lua, OSC, emulation of keyboard / mouse, etc).

For kiku, i'm using Julius voice recognition (can be compile on OS X) 
and the Voxforge english acoustic model. The next version have Open 
Sound Control (client only) built-in. So maybe you can use VirtualBox 
inside OS X install Ubuntu and use kiku OSC (but what an ugly solution).
