Real vs. rule-generated tongue movements as an audio-visual speech perception support

We have conducted two studies in which animations created from real tongue movements and rule-based synthesis are compared. We first studied if the two types of animations were different in terms of how much support they give in a perception task. Subjects achieved a significantly higher word recognition rate insentences when animations were shown compared to the audio only condition, and a significantly higher score with real movements than with synthesized. We then performed a classification test, in which subjects should indicate if the animations were created from measurements or from rules. The results show that the subjects as a group are unable to tell if the tongue movements are real or not. The stronger support from real movements hence appears to be due to subconscious factors.
