Lip Movements In Non-Focal and Focal Position For Visual Speech Synthesis

Asa Hallgren, Bertil Lyberg

Telia Research AB, (Sweden)

In acoustic and visual synthesis based on concatenation of speech units such as demisyllables, the recording of these units is normally taken from nonsense utterances where the demisyllable in question is pronounced in a non-focal position. In the present investigation, the relation between the lip movements in focal and non-focal position is studied and a computational model is hypothesised.
