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

Did you import the module?

Are you talking about the speech_recognition module as mentioned by @Omkar?

NameError: name 'xx' is not defined

Python knows the purposes of certain names (ex. built-in functions ). Other names are defined within the program (ex. variables). If Python encounters a name that it doesn't recognize, you'll probably get NameError: global name 'xx' is not defined error. In most cases, this error is triggered when Python sees a variable name (Global or Local) and doesn't know what it's for. These errors can happen if you forget to initialize a variable , if you misspell a variable, or if you misspell a reserved word such as "True". Before you use the global variable in your function for reading, it must be first initialized somewhere: either outside of the function or inside it.
