Methods used for Virtual Assistant
1) Speak Method
Speak Method will help us in taking the voice from the machine. Here is the code explanation of Speak Method

5) Main method
Main method is the method where all the files get executed so we will call the Take_query method here so that it can recognize and tell or give us the desired output.
