These are the supporting files for the "How to Call Python from MATLAB" ( and "How to Call MATLAB from Python" ( videos.

They show examples of speech-to-text recognition and sentiment analysis of the detected text by combining MATLAB and Python functionality.

This example requires MATLAB R2019b or later, as well as Statistics and Machine Toolbox and Text Analytics Toolbox.

You will also need to install Python and the appropriate packages to run this example. The two main ones you will need are as follows; however, you may need to first resolve other unmet dependencies.

pip install speechrecognition pocketsphinx

This example was tested using Python versions 3.6 and 3.7.

@Damoian I am trying to do the same thing for my project, but found no other way!

@Damian -- There is no automatic converter between the languages. You can keep what you've done in Python and call it from MATLAB for the rest of your project like what is shown in this example. Then, either now or at a later time, you can manually port your existing stuff to MATLAB.

I have a project I'd like to duplicate from Python in Matlab. Is this something you can help me with?
