Howdy,

Does anybody know where I can find information specifically regarding the programming of Microsoft Agent and the behaviours of the Agent characters in Delphi?

Thanx

Sorry to do this....But what I'm looking for, are routines which allow me to directly access Microsofts SAPI. I've found components which can do this, but i'm interested in actually being able to manpulate the SAPI.

Thanx though.

Do you mean you want the Delphi translation from SpeechAPI?

Yes and No. A Translation of using the Speech API would be excellent, but what i'm really looking for are ways of actually controlling the Agent Characters(IE: running character animations).

1. try to find usefull information, downloading and installing any Microsoft Agent components from : http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/imedia/agent/agentdevdl.asp

2. import ActiveX Control from your Delphi IDE Menu component, "try to find Microsoft Agent", and make sure to downloading 'text-to-speak engine' and 'speak recognition engine'

3. Put Microsoft Agent in your Form.

4. write this :

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
     with Agent1 do
     begin
          CONNECTED := True;

          SpeechInput.ENABLED;                         // if you need speech recognition facility
          CommandsWindow.Set_Visible(False);

          Characters.Load('ginie', 'c:\windows\msagent\chars\genie.acs');
          with Characters.Character(KarakterAgent).Commands do
          begin
               Add('close', 'close window', 'close window', True, True); // add voice command                                                                                                   you want
      ..................
          end;
     end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Agent1Command(Sender: TObject; UserInput: IDispatch);
var
     sCommand : string;
begin
     sCommand := Variant(UserInput).name;

     if sCommand = 'close' then
     begin
      {procedure to make TAgent Speak}

      with Agent1.Characters.Character('ginie') do
           begin
                      SHOW(False);             

                     play(Pleased');              // to make animation > Smiles and holds
                              hands together
                      Speak('are you sure you want to quit ?, '');
            ...............
           end;    
           CLOSE;
end;

That's all, hope usefull
