The paper describes strategy and results for an evaluation of the naturalness of a facial animation system with the help of hearing-impaired persons. It shows perspectives for improvement of the facial animation model, independent on the animation model itself. The fundamental thesis of the evaluation is that the comparison of presented and perceived visual information has to be performed on base of the viseme structure of the language.
