Because Speech Server enables you to build and deploy voice response applications, the Speech Server architecture is best understood when separated into two areas: design and runtime.

The Design Time architecture diagram depicts Speech Server from a programmer's perspective, with Visual Studio 2005 featured prominently along with a detailed view of the Web server.

The Runtime and Operations architecture diagram shows the various components that a voice response application uses when it is deployed, as well as operations components such as Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) and Tuning and Reporting Server.
