We trying to make a voice assistant. We are enhancing the rasa bot to add voice. Captured the audio , and created an url using javascript libraries and when passed it to the RASA and trying to open /download the audio using urllib.request.openurl… I am getting below error.

Is blob type not supported by urllib?

Hi Vijay,

You should post your question on the related urllib forum.

Have you considered using a widget or service that handles the STT for you? I have used the chatroom widget for STT if a web widget works for your use. Have also used Amazon Connect which can do STT via transcribe with Rasa. I think twilio is another option for voice via phone.
