There is an article on Linux.com (written by Colin Beckingham) that outlines the steps the author took to create a small system that can query a database using speech ... with help from HTK, Julius, Audacity, Festival and the VoxForge tutorial and howto.   From the introductory paragraph of the article:

Though the tools for voice control and dictation in the open source world lag far behind those in the commercial arena, I decided to see how far I could get in querying a database by voice and having the computer respond verbally. Using a number of open source tools, I'm happy to report success.

Many thanks to Colin for describing his approach/experiences.
