The SpeechRecognition library requires Python 3.3 or up:

Requirements

[...]

The first software requirement is Python 3.3 or better. This is required to use the library.

and from the Trove classifiers:

Programming Language :: Python
Programming Language :: Python :: 3
Programming Language :: Python :: 3.3
Programming Language :: Python :: 3.4

The urllib.request module is part of the Python 3 standard library; in Python 2 you'd use urllib2 here.
