AI Smart Voice Assistant for our own Device Using Speech Recognition Python Library

By VARUN SIMHA REDDY

A smart voice assistant can perform tasks or services, or answer questions used to carry out tasks via voice recognition.

OVERVIEW

Voice control accesses us to interact with our smart assistant, without lifting our single finger. Whether controlling the high smart technology or looking for the cloud through the internet to find the information we are looking for, this handy feature makes our routine life simpler and much more efficient. One of the main use for a smart assistant is to get instant answers to the questions we may have, to find the required information,  we need internet with the assistant searching. If we need to do a phone call but do not have free hands? Simply activate the assistant and, provided you have given it access to your contacts book, you can have placed a call for you.
