To do large vocabulary dictation of any words the user might say you would need to use a cloud-based service such as Nuance Dragon SDK or AT&T Watson, or you could use a UITextView and in that way allow your users to dictate into the online speech engine that is also used by Siri. I don’t give support for those approaches here but there are many places where you can get information on SDKs for large vocabulary dictation tasks.

OpenEars and its plugins are for performing offline recognition without requiring a data connection, so they are not designed for large vocabulary dictation tasks involving any word a user might say, but are optimized for fast offline recognition of smaller vocabularies for language models or grammars that can be configured in advance.
