Fourth ISCA ITRW on Speech Synthesis
August 29 - September 1, 2001
This paper presents the main approaches used
to synthesize talking faces, and provides
greater detail on a handful of these approaches.
No system is described exhaustively, however,
and, for purposes of conciseness, not all
existing systems are reviewed. An attempt is
made to distinguish between facial synthesis
itself (i.e, the manner in which facial
movements are rendered on a computer
screen), and the way these movements may be
controlled and predicted using phonetic input.
