A spoken command analyzer computing system includes technologies configured to analyze information extracted from a speech sample and, using a joint speaker and phonetic content model, both determine whether the analyzed speech includes certain content (e.g., a command) and to identify the identity of the human speaker of the speech. In response to determining that the identity matches the authorized user's identity and determining that the analyzed speech includes the modeled content (e.g., command), an action corresponding to the verified content (e.g., command) is performed by an associated device.
