Again, not within Pd, but we had some success using the CMU Sphinx 4 Java library and Processing for this project:

I'm not sure if a Java app will be too heavy for an embedded board though, but I can send along the compiled Processing library wrapper I made for Sphinx 4 if you want.

Otherwise you can look into the earlier CMU sphinx implementation, but it wasn't quite as god as we need it. The fact of the matter is that speech recognition is not very good overall unless you send it off to some giant server farm ala Siri or Google, privacy issues notwithstanding.
