Abstract : Within the framework of an acoustic-visual (AV) speech synthesizer, we describe a preliminary tongue model that is both simple and flexible, and which is controlled by 3D electromagnetic articulography (EMA) data through an animation interface, providing realistic tongue movements for improved visual intelligibility. Data from a pilot study is discussed and deemed encouraging, and the integration of the tongue model into the AV synthesizer is outlined.
