Ultra Hal Representative / More extensive description of Hal

I would be very grateful if you could tell me where I could find information on editing Hal's brain. The support information at http://www.zabaware.com/assistant/help/index.htm is very basic. Is there a list of editing commands, how to use scripts..... which is sufficient for somebody who can program but knows nothing about the design of Hal. Thank you. Douglas

I solved the problem. In the speech window you have numerous voices to choose. Crystal has two options. One says SAPI 5 and the other does not say what SAPI version it is. I had picked SAPI 5 which does not have a lip sync action. By picking the other Crystal voice with no SAPI version, the lip sync works. This must be SAPI version 4.

I will be surprised if it is not possible to lip sync as Zabaware sells the Cheri character. We will see.

Well, wait to see if someone tell me I am wrong, that happens often enough.

There may be a way to get some lip sync to work through extended function in a plugin, I don't know.

Oh that is very disappointing! Thank you.

Unfortunately, I think the "X" means "not available". Hal only seems to recognize a few lip sync msagents and I don't know why. I would love to know so I could make my agent lip sync ready.

I am a new member and would be grateful for some help.

I am running XP on Acer Aspire One with 2GB RAM, 130GB SATA HD and Intel Atom processor. I have AT&T voice Crystal installed in a folder "ATTNaturalVoices" on C:\rogram Files. I have purchased UltraHal version 6.2.28.  and it is installed in the folder "Zabaware" on C:Program Files.
I have purchased the character Cheri which is a 28MB file installed in C:WINDOWS|msagentchars.
Also
C:AgentsCheriAetUp 29MB application.
C:Program FilesabawareUltra Hal Assisstant 6   1KB UHP file

When I run Ultra Hal the Crystal voice is heard and the Cheri character appears. However, there is no lip sync. I have run Ultra Hal the Character option under speech and can see that Cheri is present and high lighted. The lip sync has an X as a property. When I run the SAPI update config the HapSAPISetup window opens and the Peter voice is selected. I select the ATT Crystal voice, test it so I can hear it and then hit the "make it my default SAPI option but it will not save this.

When I run Cyberbuddy the Crystal voice works and there is lip sync.

Can anybody please tell me why I cannot get lip sync with Ultra Hal?

Thank you.

Douglas
