To recognize the speech in Python, Pyaudio is used. It can be installed using the pip install Pyaudio command and SpeechRecognition, and this package can be installed by using pip install SpeechRecognition. 

Speech Recognition is a machine's ability to listen to spoken words and identify them. We can then use speech recognition in Python to convert the user spoken words into text and make a query or give a reply to the user. We can even program some devices to respond to these spoken words, and we can check our pronunciation with the help of the Google speech recognition engine or simply by recording and playing back our speech. The tool shows the confidence level of recognition and the closest variants of the user's spoken sentences. We also used this module, pyttsx3, which is a text-to-speech conversion library in Python. Unlike alternative libraries, it works offline and is compatible or capable with both Python 2 and 3, and an application invokes the pyttsx3. init() factory function to get a reference to a pyttsx3. 

Here is an example of how to check the pronunciation of speech in Python:
