Jonas Beskow, Martin Dahlquist, Björn Granström, Magnus Lundeberg, Karl-Erik Spens, Tobias Öhman

The Teleface Project, a project that aims at evaluating the possibilities for a telephone communication aid for hard of hearing persons, is presented as well as the different parts of the project: audio-visual speech synthesis, visual speech measurement and multimodal speech intelligibility studies. The experiments showed a noticeable intelligibility advantage for the addition of the face information, both for natural and synthetic faces.
