MacOSX SpeechRecognition installation problems

I would suggest using virtual environment (virtualenv, for example) for installing such packages. 

Dealing with directory permissions on MacOS is complicated, and using "sudo" is not the right way. Moreover, during the next OS upgrade the permissions will be updated as well, and chances are that your global package configuration breaks anyways.
