Speech to text conversion is not a pure Python solution. It must be based
on some kind of "external service". From the details you have provided,
it looks like some web service.

Your error occurs because what the "external service" has delivered
it not what "speech-to-text" has expected. More precisely,
"speech-to-text" has excepted as result a dict with a "results" key --
but this is missing (likely because some input is wrong or there
is a version mismatch between your "speech-to-text" and the "external service").

I expect that the "data" mentioned in the traceback above contains
some clues for what went wrong. I would use the Python debugger
to investigate along these lines. As you are not yourself a Python
programmer, find one in your region to support you.
