Evaluating a virtual speech cuer

G. Gibert, Gérard Bailly, F. Elisei

This paper presents the virtual speech cuer built in the context of the ARTUS project aiming at watermarking hand and face gestures of a virtual animated agent in a broadcasted audiovisual sequence. For deaf televiewers that master cued speech, the animated agent can be then superimposed - on demand and at the reception - on the original broadcast as an alternative to subtitling. The paper presents the multimodal text-to-speech synthesis system and the first evaluation performed by deaf users.
