Actually, speech recognition works fine across the board AS LONG AS you use
a limited grammar set.  It's the arbitrary language speech recognition that
needs to be trained to a particular voice.  However, arbitrary language isn't
normally a common case for IVR systems, which need a limited set of responses
in order to decide the proper branch in a decision tree.
