Description

Speech animation is widely used in technical devices to allow the growing number of hearing impaired persons, children, middle-aged and elderly equal participation in communication. Accuracy of the speech recognition or generation engine, modelled visemes, phonemes to visemes mapping and coarticulation control model mainly influence speech animation quality, so phonetics of specific language must be analysed to create new „Talking head” (synthetic head model that can produce visual speech). Framework suitable to visualize Lithuanian language, which includes two new models to improve intelligibility of animated speech is proposed and applied to create Lithuanian „Talking head” „LIT”.

It is followed by an extensive list of 144 references and a list of 3 publications by the author on the topic of the dissertation.
