AttributeError: type object 'Audio' has no attribute 'speech'

Nothing seems to solve the missing attribute speech. Is there something I’m doing wrong?

Below is my python.
import os
import openai
from pathlib import Path
from packaging import version
current_version = version.parse(openai.version)
print (current_version) #PRINTS 0.28.0
openai.api_key = os.getenv(“OPENAI_API_KEY”)
file = ‘TextToSpeech.ipynb’ #in interactive we need this.
speech_file_path = Path(file).parent / “speech.mp3”

#Fails here
response = openai.Audio.speech.create(
input=“Today is a wonderful day to build something people love!”

You’ll need to update to the latest python openai library, and then you can use new client methods as seen in the API reference (sidebar of the forum).

Here’s my start at making TTS a bit more object-oriented. More than an example, less than something to be your go-to ‘import tts_utils’ yet.

You have to keep trying to make sure and get the right version installed.
Run from the Visual Studio Terminal in the directory where your jupyter (.ipynb) file lives.
pip install openai==1.3.7

Thank you, this did help me because I realized that it had to be the openai version.
