This is my first run at blogging in general so please be patient as I get on track.  I work on the Microsoft Speech Server team and my main focus here will be covering some of the cool things you can do with this product and possibly help where things are not too obvious.  I will also have tidbits on general development and anything else that pops up - typical blog stuff.

For those of you who have some extra time and would like to create some speech applications, the Speech SDK is available for free download here.  There is a tutorial included that goes through creating a pizza application.  One of the nice parts about the SDK is you can debug your speech applications using Visual Studio.
