Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper describes a mouth pattern synthesis system for Sign Language CG(Computer Graphics) Animation. In Japanese Sign Language (JSL), mouth patterns, as well as manual movements, play important roles to convey language information. The mouth patterns of place names, for example, make them easier to be recognized as proper names. In our synthesis system, CG animations of the mouth patterns are made by combining the basic CG animations such as vowels and so on, and by synthesizing the CG animations of the readings per Kanji character. Our system also aids an operator to adjust the time length and the ratio of mouth opening, showing the CG movies of the synthesized mouth patterns together with head, finger and hand animations.
