Microsoft Agent

Postby Vas709 » April 28th, 2016, 4:26 pm

Are you interested in using Microsoft Agent?

Microsoft Agent is an animation created by Microsoft Corporation for Microsoft Windows. It allows users to animate Microsoft Agent characters. Animated characters use text-to-speech robotic voices, show speech balloons, move anywhere on the screen, and other things. Microsoft Agent also supports speech tags such as whisper, monotone, emphasis, and normal. And two context tags, address and email. Words that are not pronounced correctly can be fixed using a speech map tag.

I like using Microsoft Agent. It is very fun and entertaining for animation. For script editing, I use MASH and Vox Proxy. These presentations can be tutorials, stories, introductions, songs, and other concepts.

My favorite animated characters are Merlin, Genie, Peedy, Robby, James, and Paul. I also like Clippy but he annoyed people by asking if they would like help for writing a letter. Too bad Microsoft Agent was discontinued by Microsoft. I made a tutorial about how to fix Microsoft Agent on Windows Vista, 7 and later.

You can search for Microsoft Agent on the Internet. I won't put links because of the rule.

Clippy anyone?
The whole thing seems to resemble Clippy in a way, except that this isn't for Office, but rather for user-created programs.
I'd really like to see if I could tweak Windows 8 Dev Preview beta so that it could be used for everyday stuff!*
*Includes tweaking it to the point where it identifies as Windows 7 SP1.

I see they re-used Merlin from the Whistler beta builds. Funny enough he was in the final setup folder for Windows XP, when you create your account. (location C:\Windows\system32\oobe\images\)

Sorry for the delayed reply. Yes, I also saw a video of Windows Whistler Build 2416 uploaded by MajorSky17 on YouTube, where Merlin helps users to finish the installation of Windows Whistler. Merlin was replaced by the question mark assistant in the final version of Windows XP.
