Avatar Systems


Avatar (computing)

Notes:

Avatar Systems often come bundled with an AI Engine; however, I prefer unbundled, modularized, plug and play. Generally an Avatar System will include text-to-speech (TTS) (aka speech synthesis) with lip-sync. Speech-to-text (STT) (aka speech recognition) may currently be provided (1) on the desktop by Windows 7 speech tools (see Microsoft Speech API), (2) in the Chrome browser with Google Speech API, or (3) on the mobile platform with iPhone or Android speech tools. Advanced applications may include face tracking (see Avatar Kinect) and facial recognition.
