Adapting visual data to a linear articulatory model


The goal of this work is to investigate audiovisual-to-articulatory inversion. It is well established that acoustic-to-articulatory inversion is an underdetermined problem. On the other hand, there is strong evidence that human speakers/listeners exploit the multimodality of speech, and more particularly the articulatory cues: the view of visible articulators, i.e. jaw and lips, improves speech intelligibility. It is thus interesting to add constraints provided by the direct visual observation of the speaker's face. Visible data was obtained by stereo-vision and enable the 3D recovery of jaw and lip movements. These data were processed to fit the nature of parameters of Maeda's articulatory model. Inversion experiments were conducted.
