Resynthesis of Facial and Intraoral Articulation fromSimultaneous Measurements
2003 (English)In: Proceedings of the 15th International Congress of phonetic Sciences (ICPhS'03), Adelaide: Casual Productions , 2003Conference paper (Other academic)
Simultaneous measurements of tongue and facial motion,using a combination of electromagnetic articulography(EMA) and optical motion tracking, are analysed to improvethe articulation of an animated talking head and toinvestigate the correlation between facial and vocal tractmovement. The recorded material consists of VCV andCVC words and 270 short everyday sentences spoken byone Swedish subject. The recorded articulatory movementsare re-synthesised by a parametrically controlled 3D modelof the face and tongue, using a procedure involvingminimisation of the error between measurement and model.Using linear estimators, tongue data is predicted from theface and vice versa, and the correlation betweenmeasurement and prediction is computed.
