Image Processing, Lip Reading Mouth Detection,


Automatic lip reading has been focused as a complimentary method of automatic speech recognition in noisy environments. The automatic detection of the lip contour is relatively a difficult problem in computer vision due to the variation amongst humans and environmental conditions. There are several techniques including, but not limited to, the use of lip intensity, lip geometry, explicit lip motion to transcribe human speech. This paper presents a snake guided geometrical feature extraction approach for lip reading. A total of 4 features were extracted comprising the feature vector. A database consisting of vowel utterances was created to test the lip reading system.
