In this paper, we introduce a German viseme inventory for visemically transcribing text according to phonetic transcribtion. A viseme set like the one presented in this work is essential for speech-driven audiovisual synthesis due to the fact that the selection of appropriate video segments is based on the visemically transcribed input text.

Work is currently being carried out on a speech database constructed in order to study speech rhythm in connection with speech rate. The database, BonnTempo-Corpus, and the Praat based analysis tools, BonnTempo-Tools, are a powerful instrument for examining various aspects of recently proposed rhythm measures (e.g. %V, C, nPVI, rPVI, etc.) in relation to(More)
In this working paper we introduce a German viseme set which we already use in our data-driven audiovisual synthesis system. The viseme set is essential for speech driven audiovisual synthesis due to the fact that the selection of appropriate video segments is based on the visemically transcribed input text. For text-to-speech synthesis, a transcription of(More)
