As implemented in MS Office by MS, I agree that it sucks. I was
referring to creative use of the technology as a training aid. If the
technology is used properly, one can have several characters carrying on
a conversation, that can vary with the user's input. Of course, it is
not be appropriate for all applications. Neither is any other approach
suitable for all users. Just t one more weapon in your arsenal. YMMV
