  1. No Fault

    I sloved my own problem. Firstly! I uninstalled Python-3.8 from control panel and installed Python-3.7.2(and added to path during installation).

    Secondly,Upgraded setuptool using cmd -> pip install –upgrade setuptools. after that I installed SpeechRecognition, pyttsx3

    and after that I also installed PyAudio-0.2.11-cp37-cp37m-win_amd64.whl using whl file(because pyaudio is necessary to run this program).
