This study explores the use of automatic methods to detect and extract handgesture movement co-occuring with speech. Two spontaneous dyadic dialogueswere analyzed using 3D motion-capture techniques to track hand movement.Automatic speech/non-speech detection was performed on the dialogues resultingin a series of connected talk spurts for each speaker. Temporal synchrony of onsetand offset of gesture and speech was studied between the automatic hand gesturetracking and talk spurts, and compared to an earlier study of head nods andsyllable synchronization. The results indicated onset synchronization between headnods and the syllable in the short temporal domain and between the onset of longergesture units and the talk spurt in a more extended temporal domain.
