Where is cloud speech SDK?

Peter Taps 1 Reputation point

I need to write a program where I can send an utterance "What time is it?" to Azure cloud and get back the response audio. I have done something similar with Amazon Alexa SDK as well as Google Assistant SDK. But I cannot find the right SDK to use for Microsoft. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Note that I have found Microsoft's speech-to-text and text-to-speech APIs. However, this is not what I am looking for. I am looking for automated responses to my queries such as for time and weather. Regards.

Any platform (.NET, C++ on Linux) is fine.

Thank you for your help.

    @Peter Taps The architecture around building a smart assistant like alexa on Azure needs integration between different services. The architecture for the same at a high level looks like below:


    While most of the smart integration is required from services like LUIS, QnAMaker or bing web search you can each SDKs available in each of these services. Speech service is primarily used to convert speech to text and vice-versa.
