Python Script to Shutdown your PC using Voice Commands | Python Project

Voice Recognition or simply referred to as speech recognition is quite fascinating and fun at the same time. Yes, it is possible with the help of terminal and some modules like OS module, Speech Recognition module, and Pyttsx3 module in Python through which one can shut down a PC by just using voice commands we’ll see it in brief in this mini python project.

You can practice Python on Python Interpreter on our website that can easily run scientific libraries like Numpy and SciPy  and matplotlib and is really efficient and easy to use!

Required Python Modules:

  • OS module: It is an in-built module in python that acts as a bridge between a python program and the operating system.
  • Speech Recognition module: It is an external module in python which helps to perform different functions depending totally on the user’s voice commands.
  • Pyttsx3 module: It’s a library in Python that helps to convert text-to-speech and vice versa.

Module Installation:

If you don’t have the required modules then you can download them using pip which is a package management system written in python. It connects to an online repository of public packages, called the Python Package Index. pip can also be configured to connect to other package repositories, provided that they comply to Python Enhancement Proposal 503.

pip install SpeechRecognition
pip install pyttsx3

Below is the source code to create a program to shutdown PC using Voice Commands using Python:

# Importing required modules
import os
import pyttsx3
import speech_recognition as sr

# Creating class
 with name as codersbuddy
class codersbuddy:
	# create takeCommands() method to take commands as input
	def takeCommands(self):
		# Using Recognizer and Microphone Method for input voice commands
		r = sr.Recognizer()
		with sr.Microphone() as source:

			# Number pf seconds of non-speaking audio before
			# a phrase is considered complete
			r.pause_threshold = 0.7
			audio = r.listen(source)

			# Voice input is identified

				# Listening voice commands in en-in (indian english)
				Query = r.recognize_google(audio, language='en-in')

				# Displaying the voice command
				print("the query is printed='", Query, "'")

			except Exception as e:

				# Displaying exception
				# Handling exception
				print("Can you say that again sir?")
				return "None"
		return Query

	# Create a Speak() method so that the computer can communicate with the user
	def Speak(self, audio):
		# Constructor call for pyttsx3.init()
		engine = pyttsx3.init('sapi5')

		# Setting voice type and id
		voices = engine.getProperty('voices')
		engine.setProperty('voice', voices[1].id)

	# Method to self shut down system
	def quitSelf(self):
		self.Speak("Do you want to switch off the computer sir?")

		# Input voice command
		take = self.takeCommand()
		choice = take
		if choice == 'yes':

			# Shutting down
			print("Shutting down the computer")
			self.Speak("Shutting down the computer")
			os.system("shutdown /s /t 30")
		if choice == 'no':

			# Idle
			print("Thank you sir!")
			self.Speak("Thank You sir!")


# Driver code	
# Now in the driver code create a codersbuddy object (codersbuddy is our class name) and call the quitSelf() method		
if __name__ == '__main__':
	Maam = codersbuddy()
