Python error "NameError: name 'sr' is not defined"

0 votes

I am running a python script for speech-recognition:

def readAudioFile(audio_file):
    r = sr.Recognizer()
    file = sr.AudioFile(audio_file)
    with file as source:

        audio = r.record(source)
        type(audio)
    try:
        message = r.recognize_google(audio)
        print(message)
        print("Data extracted from phone conversation:\n" + message)
    except sr.UnknownValueError:
        print("Google Speech Recognition could not understand audio")

But when I run this, I get NameError: name 'sr' is not defined  error. How to solve this?

I guess you are using speech_recognition module and missing the import. Include this line at the beginning of your script and see if it works:

import speech_recognition as sr
