Errors, warnings, and informational notifications from Speech Server processes are written to the application event log of the Windows event logs. You access the application event log using Windows Event Viewer. With Event Viewer, you can view descriptions of individual events, access troubleshooting information for events, filter events by source, and clear the event log. For more information about using Event Viewer, see Event Viewer.

For additional troubleshooting information about Speech Server errors and warnings, see Events and Error Message Center.

You can configure Speech Server to send events from running voice response applications to the application event log. For more information, see How to: Set Up Developer Events for the Windows Event Log.
