Abstract

The ARTUS project provides deaf televiewers with an alternative substitute for subtitles using Cued Speech: an animated agent can be superimposed - on demand and at the reception - to the original broadcast. The hand and face gestures of the agent are generated automatically by a text-to-cued speech synthesizer and watermarked in the broadcasted audiovisual signals. We describe here the technological blocks of our demonstrator. First evaluation of the complete system by end-users is presented.
