I'm confused about number to word conversion & pyttsx.

VizViz New JerseyMember Posts: 1

I am writing a python program on Windows using Python 2.7. Basically, it's a program that takes a 5-digit, negative & positive, number from user & spells it out in English using num2word or any other way & then speaks it out too. I have used espeak & pyttsx both but i'm getting errors in all of them. I have tried this:
`num = raw_input('Please enter your 5 digit number:')
while len(num) != 5 or (not num.isdigit()):
print 'Not a 5 digit number'
num = raw_input('Please enter your 5 digit number:')
num = int(num)

def spellnum(num,join=True):
#Lists of number words

    thousands = ['','thousand','million']
    tens = ['','ten','twenty','thirty','forty','fifty','sixty','seventy','eighty','ninety']
    teens = ['','eleven','twelve','thirteen','fourteen','fifteen','sixteen','seventeen','eighteen','nineteen']
    units = ['','one','two','three','four','five','six','seven','eight','nine'] 
    #Empty List for number words
    words = [] 
    #zero case
    if num==0: words.append('zero')
    #how to handle negative numbers
    if num < 0: words.append('negative') 
    num = abs(num)
    #a series of steps to process the numbers and turn them into words
    numStr = '%d'%num
    numStrLen = len(numStr)
    groups = (numStrLen+2)/3
    numStr = numStr.zfill(groups*3)
    for i in range(0,groups*3,3):
        h,t,u = int(numStr[i]),int(numStr[i+1]),int(numStr[i+2])
        g = groups-(i/3+1)
        if h>=1:
            words.append(units[h])
            words.append('hundred')
        if t>1:
            words.append(tens[t])
            if u>=1: words.append(units[u])
        elif t==1:
            if u>=1: words.append(teens[u])
            else: words.append(tens[t])
        else:
            if u>=1: words.append(units[u])
        if (g>=1) and ((h+t+u)>0): words.append(thousands[g]+',')
    #final joining of parts
        if join: return ' '.join(words)
    return words

print 'Your number is: ', spellnum(num)

import pyttsx
engine = pyttsx.init()
engine.say(num)
engine.runAndWait()`

Output was:

`Please enter your 5 digit number:34534
Your number is: thirty four thousand,

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Python27\prj.py", line 48, in
engine = pyttsx.init()
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx__init__.py", line 39, in init
eng = Engine(driverName, debug)
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx\engine.py", line 45, in init
self.proxy = driver.DriverProxy(weakref.proxy(self), driverName, debug)

File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx\drivers\sapi5.py", line 19, in

ImportError: No module named win32com.client`

First, it's not spelling the complete number that the user provided. For e.g.: I entered 20300 & it said "twenty thousand,", that's it. It didn't say the proper "Twenty thousand, three hundred".
Second, when i entered -20300, it returned "not a 5-digit number". I know that this has something to do with .isdigit method that i used, i don't know what to do about it so that negative numbers can also be considered as proper inputs.
Third, i have tried to make it say the complete spelling of numbers by using Espeak & pyttsx both but it keeps returning errors. I tried this:

import subprocess
text = int(str(num))
subprocess.call('espeak '+text, shell=True)

Output was:

`Please enter your 5 digit number:35345
Your number is: thirty five thousand,

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Python27\prj.py", line 49, in
subprocess.call('espeak '+text, shell=True)
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects`

I also tried this:

`import pyttsx
engine = pyttsx.init()
engine.setProperty('rate', 70)

voices = engine.getProperty('voices')
for voice in voices:
print "Using voice:", repr(voice)
engine.setProperty('voice', voice.id)
engine.say(num)
engine.runAndWait()`

Output was:

`Please enter your 5 digit number:34342
Your number is: thirty four thousand,

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Python27\prj.py", line 48, in
engine = pyttsx.init()
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx__init__.py", line 39, in init
eng = Engine(driverName, debug)
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx\engine.py", line 45, in init
self.proxy = driver.DriverProxy(weakref.proxy(self), driverName, debug)
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx\driver.py", line 64, in init
self._module = import(name, globals(), locals(), [driverName])
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyttsx\drivers\sapi5.py", line 19, in
import win32com.client
ImportError: No module named win32com.client`

Please know that i'm new to Python. Any kind of help is appreciated.
