Training with multimodal lifelike agent interfaces is a promising new style of training especially for children with disabilities. In this paper, we present the evaluation results of our training agent system, TAPA (Training with Animated Pedagogical Agents), which has a realistic moving body and body language features. TAPA is Web based and can be accessed via a Web browser. TAPA allows children to access training sources over the Internet through a user-friendly multimodal interface similar to natural human communication.
