Note that the audio tracks are produced without emotions. The results in terms
of the number of the subjects are shown in Table 5.3.
The second and third experiments are designed to compare the influence of
synthetic face on bimodal human emotion perception and that of the real face.
In the second experiment‚ the subjects are asked to infer the emotional state
while observing the synthetic talking face and listening to the audio tracks. In
the third experiment‚ the subjects are asked to infer the emotional state while
observing the real face and listening to the same audio tracks. We divide the
subjects into two groups. Each of them has eight subjects. One group first
participates the second experiment and then participates the third experiment.
The other group first participates the third experiment and then participates the
second experiment. The results are then combined and compared in Table 5.4‚
5.5‚ and 5.6.
