Things that could really help are more uniform options of different countries and different eras, including hats and helmets. TTS of more English speakers with foreign accents.
Options for more gruff, authoritative speech. Perhaps a shouting option if typed in all caps.
Since a lot of this is done on non revenue generating websites, probably be best used on the Silver or Bronze level.
Now, we have developed a solution that enables SitePal avatars to be displayed on mobile devices, automatically!
SitePal Mobile Playback is Available to all SitePal customers.
There is nothing you need to do and there is no extra charge!
Here are the main details of SitePal Mobile Playback:
Works on Many Mobile Devices
SitePal Mobile lets many Web-enabled mobile device display your SitePal scene as a video. There is no need for Flash support, only video support, which is included with virtually all phones.
Included in All SitePal Packages
SitePal Mobile is included in All SitePal Packages - every SitePal customer has access to SitePal Mobile the new feature.
There is no work required to enable SitePal Mobile - it works automatically for anyone who views your website on a mobile device.
And here are some of the most common questions about the new feature:
How much does it cost?
It doesn't. SitePal Mobile is provided Free for all active SitePal customers.
Can I try SitePal Mobile before purchasing a SitePal account?
Yes. SitePal Mobile is also included in SitePal’s Free Trial. The Free Trial of SitePal includes 15 Days of unlimited access to all SitePal features for the package you select.
How does it work?
Since SitePal works on Flash, we need to be able to show SitePal scenes on mobile devices that do not support Flash. Here's how it works: When a visitor comes to your website, SitePal technology detects whether or not they are using a mobile device. If a mobile device is detected, SitePal then checks whether the device supports Flash.* If Flash is not supported, SitePal will automatically turn your scene into a video, that will play when clicked on.
Note: as with any video played on a mobile device (think of YouTube), your SitePal scene will play on the device's video player. This means that your SitePal message will capture their complete attention while it is playing.
(*Using Flash is the optimal way of viewing SitePal on your site. Some mobile devices do support Flash. So, SitePal Mobile Playback will only kick in if the user's device does not support Flash.)
Which Mobile Devices are included?
Currently, SitePal scenes can be viewed on over 90% of mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android, HTC and Blackberry platforms. Other devices may also support SitePal Mobile Playback.
What are the limitations?
Currently, all SitePal scenes can be viewed, as long as they are not part of an interactive application, such as our functional players and AI feature. For example, our Artificial Intelligence feature enables the SitePal avatar to dynamically answer thousands of questions. In this case, the avatar would require Flash support to appear. Any SitePal scene that uses a standard player that is embedded in an html Web page will play on mobile devices.
Feel free to email us your questions to email@example.com.
We produce educational videos and want to use SitePal scenes as anchor footage, intercut with our own main footage and b-roll footage. Basically, this will allow us to use SitePal avatars / characters as anchors in our videos. Makes them that much more appealing.
I understand that one must buy a studio subscription for this or contact your sales team. But we are not high-volume content producers and would be happy to pay as we go, paying each time we produce and download a scene.
Just curious - why is not pay-as-you-go a standard option, allowing customers to use your service as a standard software-as-a-service / SaaS? Would be a great option given you have a really great product!
We love what we see and are excited at the prospects of using the product for education and training, beyond just sales and marketing.

What is the maximum for Bronze? What is the maximum for Silver, Gold or Platinum?
Could I work around this by having two Bronze accounts?
I recently got a safety certificate on my website. Due to that the SitePal characters don't work. How can I solve this? By the way I am curious to know why nobody answers if I send a personal message for help. This really annoys me, I am waiting for weeks but nobody seems to be interested to answer...
