Tips of the Month
How do I integrate a speaking avatar in my Flash applications?
SitePal provides a powerful API set which allows
you to seamlessly integrate characters into Flash movies. This
shows how easily you can make calls to modify the way that the character interacts with
your movie. If you watch the callback box in the upper right, you will see the different
communications that are happening between the Flash movie and our servers. For a deeper
look into this interaction, download the FLA and review our button calls and the write
functions. By building your interaction around these calls and returns, you can easily
integrate and synchronize our character into any flash environment.
Note: Flash integration feature is available only in SitePal Gold package.

SitePal in the Press
SitePal receives its greatest praise this month
from the education sector. Professor McFarlin from the University of Houston was able to
measure improved performance and grades by incorporating a SitePal speaking character
into his course. Dr. McFarlin's study has been receiving significant attention as soon
as it became available to public in March.
