With the growing concerns about accounts hacking through cyber-attacks, the need to build systems that rely on web independent methods of identity verification has become critical. In this project, a voice identification system is built to verify the identity of an individual trying to access a computer. The system comprises of hardware and software components. The hardware consists of a speaker, attached to an Easy VR Shield, which in turn is attached to an Arduino Uno microcontroller. A database that stores the voice samples of authorized users is created. Once the user pronounces his name, the system examines the voice samples and compares it to the training voice samples that have been stored in the database, giving access to the system if the voice samples are verified. Only access to verified users whose voice samples have been recorded in the system is allowed. The system was built and tested successfully.
