To run unit tests, saved API calls are cached in the tests/testthat/mock folder. These substitute for an API call to Google and avoid authentication.

The API calls to the Cloud Speech API and translation varies slightly, so test success is judged if the string is within 10 characters of the test string. For this test then, the stringdist package is needed (under the package Suggests)

To run integration tests that hit the API, you will need to add your own authentication service JSON file from Google Cloud projects. Save this file to your computer and then set an environment variable GL_AUTH pointing to the file location. If not present, (such as on CRAN or Travis) the integration tests will be skipped.

You will need to enable the following APIs:

To create new mock files, it needs to fully load the package so do:
