Make Agents Speak!
Microsoft Agent uses SAPI 4.0 to have it's agents speak. However, now, Windows XP is shipped with SAPI 5.0 which is not compatible with this, so your agents cannot speak. Thankfully, both SAPI 4.0 and 5.0 can be on your computer at the same time with no problems, so you need to install SAPI 4.0 before Agents can speak. Please download and install it from http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/sapi/spchapi.exe
and then follow the next instructions.
If the chosen character file is not found on viewing computer, the script will then work using a file over the internet, and will be slower than normal. Please be patient.
Note: To download the character file, select Download Agents on the main menu or click on link to the right of Agents code.
There are many Agents available and those used at Rainbow Arch can be found here.
