pip install pypiwin32 


$ pip3 install pypiwin32

Sometimes using pip3 also works if just pip is not working

​Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pywin2 (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for pywin2

i am geeting this error after trying to download pywin2


Try installing flask through the powershell using the following command.

pip install --isolated Flask

This will allow installation to avoid environment variables and user configuration.

and aslo If you are using a Python 3.5+ then you could add pypiwin32==223 to your requirements.txt file instead of pywin32

Hope it works!!

Yes I tried, it is throwing errors but not audible audio when i writing anything in say() function

Hi, @Babla,

Could you please what error you are facing? It will be easy for me to investigate further.

Thanks you so much
I can't hear anything when I write dummy inside init()

Hi, Myden,

Could you please elaborate on what you are trying to do?

I can't hear if we keep dummy inside unit()

Hi, @Bunny,

Are you facing any kind of error while executing your code snippet?
