EasyVR to Picaxe-28X1

Hi!

I have bought a "Start here V 2.0" robot kit, with a Picaxe-28x1 IC, and Picaxe-28 Project board. I want to get the robot to take voice commands, and be able to talk back, and have been looking at the EasyVR Module.

But reading the manual for the EasyVR I can't figure out how to program the module trough the Picaxe microcontroller. Is this at all posible?

The manual mentions ROBONOVA, Arduino and Parallax Basic Stamp and says that they have a "bridge" program, but doesn't mention Picaxe.

Can Arduino shields be used on Picaxe

Hi,

I'm new to robotics, and just bought my first "LMR start here" robot kit. I haven"t recived it yet, but I am all ready having great plans about how to modify it (as I guess all newbies do).

So I have searched around to see what is out there, and I see that there are a lot of modules (or shields as they seems to be called in the robotics world) that can be conected stright to the Arduino.

So my question is, having just bought a Picaxe-28 Project Board, with a Picaxe-28X1 Microprocessor; can the Arduino shield be used with the Picaxe-28 Project Board?
