Use the "Display Intructions" function which gives you the opportunity to display text as well as play a sound. However, note that the only format the editor will accept is .mp3.

well, you can also use the send chat trigger.

There are several disadvantages to the send chat trigger:

1) You cannot control the duration.

2) It's displayed in smaller text.

3) You cannot control the color.

4) It's displayed at the bottom of the page.

5) You can type about 1/8th the amount of the text in send chat as display instructions.

The only way for a "real conversation", I think, is making the triggers off, using "timer" as a condition and "display instruction" plus "activate trigger" for the next line of text.
