This paper describes a 3-D synthetic announcer capable to pronounce a text, previously written by a user, with a synthetic voice. All we need is to type the text on a computer keyboard integrating a graphic processor and a sound processor. The vocal synthesis and the corresponding images synchronization are calculated by the computer. Then, the announcer pronounces the message.
