Experimental studies are required to understand the contribution of audio and visual modalities during affective communication. This paper presents a perception study of the audio-visual expression of six French attitudes. The relative importance of each modality in the decoding of these expressions is analysed, as a first step toward a deeper comprehension of their influence on social affects expression. Two speakers are evaluated, in order to test the influence of speaker’s performances on listeners’ perception.
