We created a virtual human presenter based on extensions to the JackTM animated agent system. Inputs to the presenter system are in the form of speech texts with embedded commands, most of which relate to the virtual presenter's body language. The system then makes him act as a presenter with presentation skills in real-time 3D animation synchronized with speech outputs. He can make presentations with virtual visual aids, with virtual 3D environments, or even on the WWW.
