We give an overview of SynFace, a speech-drivenface animation system originally developed for theneeds of hard-of-hearing users of the telephone. Forthe 2009 LIPS challenge, SynFace includes not onlyarticulatory motion but also non-verbal motion ofgaze, eyebrows and head, triggered by detection ofacoustic correlates of prominence and cues for interactioncontrol. In perceptual evaluations, both verbaland non-verbal movmements have been found to havepositive impact on word recognition scores.
