Virtual Talking Heads and audiovisual articulatory synthesis

  title={Virtual Talking Heads and audiovisual articulatory synthesis},
  author={Pierre Badin and G{\'e}rard Bailly and Fr{\'e}d{\'e}ric Elisei and Matthias Odisio},
Our approach to audiovisual articulatory synthesis involves the development of Virtual Talking Heads that integrate the articulatory, aerodynamic and acoustic phenomena underlying speech production. Specifically, these Talking Heads are faithful clones of the speakers whose data the various models are based on. Our contribution presents some of the results achieved at ICP in this domain: 3D orofacial linear articulatory models, made possible by recent progresses in medical imaging and video… CONTINUE READING
