How about SpeechRecognition and SpeechSynthesis instead of SpeechRecognizer
and SpeechSynthesizer?

The reason being that the APIs are really interfaces to control and
dispatch speech recognition and synthesis at a high level, the actual
recognizer and synthesizer are not necessarily local (though they could
be), they may be in a different process or on a remote server.
