Python Client for Cloud Speech API¶
The Cloud Speech API enables developers to convert audio to text by applying powerful neural network models. The API recognizes over 80 languages and variants, to support your global user base.
In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:
Install this library in a virtualenv using pip. virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. The basic problem it addresses is one of dependencies and versions, and indirectly permissions.
With virtualenv, it’s possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.

Python >= 3.5
Deprecated Python Versions¶
Python == 2.7. Python 2.7 support will be removed on January 1, 2020.
