Abstract:In this paper we present our research on developing a web-based environment, a virtual theatre, in which users can display different behaviors and have goals that emerge during the inter¬action with this environment. One way to support such users is to give them different inter¬action modalities and access to multimedia information. The interactions between user (visitor) and the system take place using different task-oriented agents. These agents allow mouse and keyboard input, but interactions can also take place using speech and language input. In the current system both sequential and simultaneous multi-modal input is possible. The system presents its information through agents that use tables, chat windows, natural language, speech and a talking face. It is discussed how our virtual environment can be considered as an interest community and it is shown what further advantages can be obtained if we continue to explore this metaphor.
