Talking 3D Virtual Agents with Cereproc and FaceFX

Cereproc, a worldwide leader in realistic text to speech software solutions, has teamed up with OC3 Entertainment to provide a realistic Unity-based text-to-animation demo.

The demo allows you to communicate with a Pandorabot displayed as a 3D talking character. Behind the scenes, the CereVoice Cloud TTS Web Service is used to synthesize the audio, and the FaceFX Analysis Servers generate the animation data. The audio and animation are then combined inside of Unity and played back for the user.
