Need help creating different avatar with different text.

Cynthia Bryant 3 weeks ago in SitePal Gold • updated by Nishant Sehgal 3 weeks ago 2

I am using the free trail.  I am trying to create several scenes with different avatars to insert on different pages in a PowerPoint presentation.  The package will change avatars and edit over the previous saved scene.  I need to create at least five different avatars for a five day e-course.  Each day there will be at least 34 different slide I will need to create text to speech for.  Please advise on how to make this happen.  Thanks in advance.

Hello Cynthia,  Please follow these instructions to embed your Sitepal scene in Powerpoint.


  1. Copy the Flash Embed Code from SitePal.


  2. Click on Options, and then Customize Ribbon.  Place a check next to Developer in the main tabs box, and then return to normal view.  You will now have a DEVELOPER tab on the ribbon.

  3.  On the Developer tab click the More Controls command in the Controls group.

  4. Scroll down the More Controls dialog box and select Shockwave Flash Object, then click OK.

  5. Once you click OK in the dialog box illustrated above, your cursor will turn to a cross-hair.  Hold down the mouse button and draw a rectangle.  When you release the mouse button the rectangle will appear with an X in it.
  6. Right click the X in the rectangle you have drawn for the Shockwave Flash Object.  Select Property Sheet from the context menu.
  7. In the resulting Properties dialog, click in the blank field next to Movie, and paste in the URL/Embed Code from the SitePal. It will look something like this:

  8. Then close the Properties box.  That’s it.
