<p>Interactive Drama Inc. has developed an innovative, voice-activated multimedia model called Conversim (conversation simulator), which lets a user conduct a virtual interview with a real person whose digitized video images are stored on a personal computer. The model consists of a series of Delphi programs that incorporate state-of-the-art speech recognition and digital video technologies, and that operate on a standard personal computer. The user speaks naturally into a microphone attached to the computer to engage the video character in a face-to-face, simulated conversation.</p>
