Lip-syncing is a process of speech assimilation with the lip motions of a virtual character. A virtual talking character is a challenging task because it should provide control on all articulatory movements and must be synchronized with the speech signal. This study presents a virtual talking character system aimed to speeding and easing the visual talking process as compared to the previous techniques using the blend shapes approach. This system constructs the lip-syncing using a set of visemes for reduced phonemes set by a new method named Prophone. This Prophone depend on the probability of appearing the phoneme in the sentence of English Language. The contribution of this study is to develop real-time automatic talking system for English language based on the concatenation of the visemes, followed by presenting the results that was evaluated by the phoneme to viseme table using the Prophone.
