pip install google-cloud   

Solution 2

The Google Cloud SDK may not be installed

  3. Run gcloud init to initialize the SDK
./google-cloud-sdk/bin/gcloud init

ImportError: cannot import name ‘speech_v1p1beta1’

This means that the Python client libraries are not installed.

ImportError: cannot import name 'speech_v1p1beta1' from '' (unknown location)

Solution 1

pip install --upgrade google-cloud-speech

You might need to use pip3 instead of pip

Error no such file or directory

ERROR: (gcloud.auth.activate-service-account) Unable to read file [apiCredentials.json]: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'apiCredentials.json'

Solution 1

  1. Ensure apiCredentials.json exists
ls apiCredentials.json

This means it either does not exist or is not in the current path

ls: cannot access 'apiCredentials.json': No such file or directory

Consult the Create a Service Account and API Keys lesson for the creation of apiCredentials.json and set up the environment variables as mentioned in Setting Up the Environment lesson.

Solution 2

  1. Once you have confirmed the apiCredentials.json file exists using solution 1, set the environment variable
export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS="apiCredentials.json"
