When we speak, we configure the vocal tract which shapes the visible motionsof the face and the patterning of the audible speech acoustics. Similarly, weuse these visible and audible behaviors to perceive speech. This bookshowcases a broad range of research investigating how these two types ofsignals are used in spoken communication, how they interact, and how they canbe used to enhance the realistic synthesis and recognition of audible andvisible speech. The volume begins by addressing two important questions abouthuman audio-visual performance: how auditory and visual signals combine toaccess the mental lexicon and where in the brain this and related processestake place. It then turns to the production and perception of multimodalspeech and how structures are coordinated within and across the twomodalities. Finally, the book presents overviews and recent developments inmachine-based speech recognition and synthesis of AV speech.
