    Reported speech is the same term for indirect speech.

    Your sentence grammar is not correct. An English question has to start with a question word. Is indirect speech equivalent with reported speech? (I prefer 'equivalent to' but 'equivalent with' also seems to be used.)

    Reported speech is not the same term.... Reported speech is another term for indirect speech. The meanings are the same, not the terms.
