Speech Server 2007

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

Many of the events related to the execution of a speech application are generated by Speech Server processes and can be captured in the Windows event log. Typically, Speech Server events (or platform events) with respect to telephony, speech recognition, and speech output are captured in the Windows application log and are viewable in Windows Event Viewer. This log contains events logged by the programs running on the computer. However, you can configure Speech Server to capture events related to deployed speech applications (also known as developer events) in the same log. Having both platform and developer events in the same log can make it easier to see the cause and effect of various process activities and assist in troubleshooting problems. You can review the events in the application log in Windows Event Viewer.

  1. Open the Speech Server Administrator console.

    For more information, see How to: Start the Speech Server Administrator Console.

  2. In the console tree, expand the applicable group, and then click Servers.

  3. In the details pane, double-click the applicable server.

  4. Click the Trace Logging tab, and then select Log developer events in Windows Event Log.

  5. Click OK.

You can also set up developer events using a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) script. For more information, see the DeveloperEventLogging property in LogSettings Class.
