You can use system commands to do this. See system
You can also use the ! to do this.

What is your command parts
Undefined function or variable 'text_to_say'.

%initializations. No need to keep doing these.
chromelocation = 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe';
local_file_prefix = 'file://';
NET.addAssembly('System.Speech');
obj = System.Speech.Synthesis.SpeechSynthesizer;
obj.Volume = 100;
command = strtrim( input('What is your command ', 's') );
parts = regexp(command, '\s+', 'split');
if isempty(parts)
text_to_say = 'Unrecognized command';
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
else
switch lower(parts{1})
case 'open'
if length(parts) == 2
cmd = [];
filename = parts{2};
if exist(filename, 'file')
openwhat = [local_file_prefix filename];
text_to_say = 'Opening local file';
else
uri = regexp(filename, '^\w\w+:'); %with at least two characters before the :
if isempty(uri)
text_to_say = 'Local file not found';
filename = [];
else
text_to_say = 'Opening URL with browser.';
cmd = sprintf('%s "%s" &', chromelocation, filename);
filename = [];
end
end
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
if ~isempty(filename)
open(filename);
end
if ~isempty(cmd)
cmd = sprintf('%s "%s" &', chromelocation, openwhat);
system(cmd);
end
else
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
end
case 'search'
if length(parts) == 2
filename = parts{2};
cmd = sprintf('cd C:\; dir /s "%s"', filename);
text_to_say = 'Searching disk C for file';
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
[status, message] = system(cmd);
if isempty(message)
text_to_say = 'System had no response to search request';
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
else
text_to_say = 'System result of search follows';
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
Speak(obj, message);
end
else
Speak(obj, text_to_say');
end
otherwise
Speak(obj, text_to_say);
end
end
