Abstract : The lack of publicly available annotated databases is a major limitation to research advances in speech processing. We describe in this paper an audiovisual speech database which is being made available to the research community. Our database, called BL-database (Blue Lips-database), consists of 238 utterances spoken by 17 speakers. The recordings have been performed during two sessions. The data of the first session can be used to analyze the 2D movements of the mouth while the data collected by the second session is dedicated to 3D analysis. The audio signal has been phonetically segmented and labeled. Such data is expected to be of great interest to all research groups working on multimodal automatic speech recognition, audio/visual synchronization or speech-driven lip animation.
