In machine lip-reading, which is identification of speech from visual-only information, there is evidence to show that visual speech is highly dependent upon the speaker (Cox et al, 2008). Here, we use a phoneme-clustering method to form new phoneme-to-viseme maps for both individual and multiple speakers. We use these maps to examine how similarly speakers talk visually. We conclude that broadly speaking, speakers have the same repertoire of mouth gestures, where they differ is in the use of the gestures.
