Using the Microsoft Linguistic Information Sound Editing Tool
[Microsoft Agent is deprecated as of Windows 7, and may be unavailable in subsequent versions of Windows.]
The Microsoft Linguistic Information Sound Editing Tool enables you to generate phoneme and word-break information for enhancing Windows sound (.wav) files to support high-quality lip-syncing character animation. The following sections describe how to use the tool.
- Installing the Sound Editor
- Starting the Sound Editor
- Creating a New Sound File
- Loading an Existing Sound File
- Generating Linguistic Information
- Saving a Sound File
- Command Reference
- Toolbar Buttons
You can use linguistically enhanced sound files generated with the sound editor to support lip-syncing Microsoft Agent character output. To do so, simply pass the file as a parameter to the Speak method. For further information, see Programming the Microsoft Agent Control or Programming the Microsoft Agent Server Interface.
