Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach for recognition of lower facial movements using motion features and hidden Markov models (HMM) for visual speech recognition applications. The proposed technique recognizes utterances based on mouth videos without using the acoustic signals. This paper adopts a visual speech model that divides utterances into sequences of smallest, visually distinguishable units known as visemes. The proposed technique uses the viseme model of Moving Picture Experts Group 4 (MPEG-4) standard. The facial movements in the video data are represented using 2D spatial-temporal templates (STT). The proposed technique combines discrete stationary wavelet transform (SWT) and Zernike moments to extract rotation invariant features from the STTs. Continuous HMM are used as speech classifier to model the English visemes. The preliminary results demonstrate that the proposed technique is suitable for classification of visemes with a good accuracy.
