LVTTSClient::GetVisemeName

Reference Number: AA-01852 Views: 2405 0 Rating/ Voters

Returns the name of the specified viseme as a character string.  

Visemes represent facial expressions related to the pronunciation of certain phonemes.  This information can be used to align visual cues to audio playback.  This may be useful in applications such as lip-syncing. When viseme generation is enabled, these markers will be generated whenever synthesis is performed. For each viseme, there will be an offset (in bytes) within the audio buffer along with a name for each.

Please refer to the phoneme tables associated with the TTS language you are using to look up the viseme that corresponds with each phoneme produced during synthesis.

This functionality was added in LumenVox version 11.3.100 (August 2013)
