  • animated characters, speech input/output in PB/DLL


    MS Agent: add interactive animated characters to your applications,
    with optional speech output and speech recognition support.

    You can download the complete MS Agent toolkit, free of charge, at:
    http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/c-frame.htm#/workshop/imedia/agent/default.asp

    The following sample, created using the JazzAge ActiveX Factory 'Client Edition' for
    PB/DLL and PB/CC, shows how to load an MS Agent character file, dipslay, move
    and gesture an animated character, and invoke its speech output capabilities.

    You will find the complete and free JazzAge ActiveX factory 2.0 'Client Edition' for PB/DLL and PB/CC
    Open Beta3 on our web site: http://www.jazzagesoft.com.

    JA 'CE' gives PB developers an immediate and complete access to the latest and most advanced
    technologies, only provided as ActiveX object models: ADO (OLE-DB), Office suite (Word, Excel),
    Outlook/Exchange, DHTML... One single product lets you develop applications sending SQL
    queries to SQL Server, relying on Outlook to send emails or groupware functionalities...

      I keep getting 'sorry, there is no microsoft.com webpage
      error when I try to go to http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/c-...nt/default.asp

      I know this is a reply to an old message, but would you know
      how I can find it?
      I am trying out the PB COM toolkit and need to dial an ordinary
      phone or cellphone,
      then get a keypress to verify a human is there and send a .wav
      or maybe a robotic speech through a voice modem (converted
      to a .wav maybe?)

      I also have no time/money to learn about TAPI or PB or JazzSoft
      as the situation is that I only get the job if I get a
      demonstration program written that can do this.
      Meanwhile, I can't keep buying software and spending my time
      just on this possible employment situation.

      (If you recallor remember me, Philippe, I beta tested DV 1.5 - would
      you be willing to send me your email? I'm at [email protected])
