Evaluation d'un système de synthèse 3D de Langue française Parlée Complétée
Guillaume Gibert, Gérard Bailly, Frédéric Elisei.

This paper presents the virtual speech cuer built in the context of the ARTUS project aiming at watermarking hand and face gestures of a virtual animated agent in a broadcasted audiovisual sequence. For deaf televiewers that master cued speech, the animated agent can be then incrusted - on demand and at the reception - in the original broadcast as an alternative to subtitling (as illustrated by Figure 1). The paper presents the multimodal text-to-speech synthesis system and the first evaluation performed by deaf users.
