Text-To-Visual-Speech animation (TTVS)

My research interets focus also on the generation of speech animation from text.

Using a video-driven tracking procedure, a correspondence is learned on a real speaker between any stream of phonemes and some phonetically-oriented facial motion parameters. This work has been initiated at the ICP for the project MOTHER (sponsored by France Telecom Multimedia). It is currently extended to english speakers and a complete model of the face.
