The second speak call is not working properly. After saying "I" it stopped saying.

I get the following output on the terminal and the prompter stops after 'i'.

What should I do to correct this?

When iḿ running the code on my Ubuntu I am getting this output:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "pycode/jarvis.py", line 4, in <module> speech_engine = pyttsx.init('sapi5') # see http://pyttsx.readthedocs.org/en/latest/engine.html#pyttsx.init File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyttsx/__init__.py", line 39, in init eng = Engine(driverName, debug) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyttsx/engine.py", line 45, in __init__ self.proxy = driver.DriverProxy(weakref.proxy(self), driverName, debug) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyttsx/driver.py", line 64, in __init__ self._module = __import__(name, globals(), locals(), [driverName]) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyttsx/drivers/sapi5.py", line 19, in <module> import win32com.client ImportError: No module named win32com.client
Why is it trying to do import win32com.client? I am using Ubuntu..

Update
Managed to make it work by removing sapi5 from pyttsx('sapi5')
But after that I got @husanin-ahmad error, I managed to get rid of the bit_audio errors by removing bluez-alsa package.
I'm still working on the unable to open slave error

i thought this code running only in windows,because it need win32com.client,or any win32com.client for linux ?

look into the documentation of pyttsx and choose the correct engine corresponding to linux. no need of win32com client. hope it hrlps @kunci115
i think the engine is espeak or you can left that blank like pyttsx.init()
