Title (EN) IMAGE SYNTHESIS
(FR) SYNTHESE D'IMAGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Synthesis of a moving picture of a face (e.g. to accompany synthetic speech) is performed by converting an input phoneme string into a sequence of mouth shapes or visemes. Specifically a shape is generated for each vowel and for each transition involving a consonant.
(FR)On procède à la synthèse d'une image animée d'un visage (pouvant p. ex. accompagner une voix de synthèse), en convertissant une chaîne de phonèmes d'entrée en une séquence d'images de bouches ou de visèmes. Une forme spécifique est générée pour chaque voyelle et pour chaque transition impliquant une consonne.
