Invocable Actions under SOAP APIs

I have been succesfull in creating REST code to make Invocable Actions APIs however I was wondering to do same for SOAP API's and i could not find suitable methods in SOAP API document.

REST API: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/api_rest/resources_actions_invocable.htm
where can I get info on corresponding API's on SOAP version?
Has salesforce opted out from SOAP for Invocable Action API's?

From Knowledge Article Number000206759 - Spring '15 - Invocable Actions with APIs. (https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewSolution?id=000206759&language=en_US) (my emphais)
All invocable actions are invoked using a common request object so you don’t have to interface with different SOAP objects or REST JSON body shapes. Invocable actions provide “describe” support so you can programmatically learn what each action’s valid input parameters are, as well as an action’s output values.

Invocable actions are available only through the REST API and provide the following attributes:
• Dynamic input and output values
• Programmatic describe support
• Consistent invocation interface
The following actions are available:
• Standard actions—These actions can be invoked as-is and don’t need any setup or creation of an instance.
– Email
– Post to Chatter
– Submit for Approval
• Custom actions—You create these actions. Apex actions are typically created by a developer, while the other actions are created by an administrator.
– Apex
– Email Alert
– Flow
– Quick Action
For more information on invocable actions, see Invocable Actions in the Force.com REST API Developer’s Guide (https://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api_rest/).
