This page illustrates the most basic use of Microsoft Agent.
Once the character and its animations have been successfully
loaded, Merlin will appear, say hello, and disappear.
You can refresh the page to make this happen again.
Be patient! Loading of the character may take a few minutes.
This sample loads its character from an HTTP URL,
so you must be connected to the WWW and be able to
reach the server at http://agent.microsoft.com,
or the sample will not work properly.
If you have never installed the Lernout & Hauspie TTS Engine,
you will be prompted to install it. Without the TTS Engine,
characters will speak, but will not produce audible speech output.
