I am trying to get some speech to text output from the respeaker package that comes within the catking ws that is installed via hello-robot shell file. But I am getting the following error when I talk to the microphone:

I also tried to run the stretch_respeaker_test.py command and it seems to work. However, the launch file command that is mentioned in the resepaker tutorial on the hello robot documentation isn’t in the respeaker folder anymore. That’s why I am running a different one.
