1997 (English)In: Proceedings of International Conference on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing / [ed] Benoït, C & Campbell, R, Rhodos, Greece, 1997, 149-152 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
It is envisioned that autonomous software agents that cancommunicate using speech and gesture will soon be oneverybody’s computer screen. This paper describes anarchitecture that can be used to design and animate characterscapable of lip-synchronised synthetic speech as well as bodygestures, for use in for example spoken dialogue systems. Ageneral scheme for computationally efficient parametricdeformation of facial surfaces is presented, as well as techniques for generation of bimodal speech, facial expressionsand body gestures in a spoken dialogue system. Resultsindicating that an animated cartoon-like character can be asignificant contribution to speech intelligibility, are also reported.
