In our society, people make presentations to inform, teach, motivate, and persuade others. Appropriate gestures effectively enhance the expressiveness and believability of such presentations. Likewise, a virtual human agent who adequately performs gestures during presentations can inform us effectively and serve as an interface agent mediating communication between user and computer. We created a virtual human presenter who accepts speech texts with embedded commands as inputs. The presenter acts in real-time 3D animation synchronized with speech for more effective communication.
