The aim of this paper is to present the multimodal speech corpora collected at KTH, in the framework of the European project PF-Star, and discuss some of the issues related to the analysis and implementation of human communicative and emotional visual correlates of speech in synthetic conversational agents. Two multimodal speech corpora have been collected by means of an opto-electronic system, which allows capturing the dynamics of emotional facial expressions with very high precision. The data has been evaluated through a classification test and the results show promising identification rates for the different acted emotions. These multimodal speech corpora will truly represent a valuable source to get more knowledge about how speech articulation and communicative gestures are affected by the expression of emotions.
