In addition to these authoring tools, the SASDK provides a powerful set of ASP.NET Speech controls, a Speech Add-in for Microsoft Internet Explorer, debugging tools, a speech application deployment service, tools for speech application log analysis, sample and reference applications, a rich grammar library, and reference documentation.
