This paper presents an embodied conversational agent (ECA) that presents multimedia contents. The system takes plain text as input, and automatically generates a presentation featured with an animated agent. It selects and generates appropriate gestures and facial expressions for a humanoid agent according to linguistic information in the text As a component of the ECA system, we also present an agent animation system, RISA, which can draw animations of natural human behaviors on web-based applications.
