You may use the below material as a quick, standalone guide for speech-to-text. However, this is the second part of a broader series that uses Python to build your own computer assistant. If you want to learn more, see here for the first part of the series that uses Python to make your computer talk.

Speech to text (as well as text to speech) are natural language processing problems, which is often shortened to the acronym, NLP. Any NLP problem involves taking the written or spoken word, doing some computation and producing an output or prediction.

Speech recognition software breaks an audio recording into individual sounds, analyses the sounds, and then uses an algorithm to find the most… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
