Evaluation of a Virtual Narrator's Expressiveness in Terms of Suspense Signaling [chapter]

Norbert Braun, Thomas Rieger
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe the results of the evaluation of a Virtual Character, used as a human-like, automated narrator with focus on the signaling of suspenseful situations within stories to the Virtual  ...  It indicates these points to an expressiveness module, which assigns expressiveness states to the Virtual Narrator.  ...  The system is able to control the narrative expressiveness of a Virtual Narrator by the usage of three suspense categories (suspense progression, narrative conflict and narrative relevance).  ...

Nesrine Fourati, Adeline Richard, Sylvain Caillou, Nicolas Sabouret, Jean-Claude Martin, Emilie Chanoni, Celine Clavel
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We discuss the impact of facial expressions of appraisals on children's memorization of story events, their perception of characters' appraisals, their subjective perception of the virtual storyteller  ...  In this paper, we present a framework for an expressive virtual storyteller for children. Our virtual storyteller displays facial expressions of appraisals related to story events.  ...  The authors would like to thank Matthieu Courgeon for his help in the development of our virtual storyteller.  ...

Emotional Storytelling using Virtual and Robotic Agents [article]

Sandra Costa, Alberto Brunete, Byung-Chull Bae, Nikolaos Mavridis
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In order to create effective storytelling agents three fundamental questions must be answered: first, is a physically embodied agent preferable to a virtual agent or a voice-only narration?  ...  The results of two specially designed studies indicate that the physically embodied robot produces more attention to the listener as compared to a virtual embodiment, that a human voice is preferable over  ...  [11] , [12] presented Papous, a virtual storyteller using a synthetic 3D person model with affective speech and affective facial/body expression.  ...

Guilherme Raimundo, João Cabral, Celso Melo, Luís C. Oliveira, Ana Paiva, Isabel Trancoso
Verbal and Nonverbal Communication Behaviours  
Can we create a virtual storyteller that is expressive enough to convey in a natural way a story to an audience? What are the most important features for creating such character?  ...  Furthermore, when we used the synthetic voice, the facial expressions of both characters (the virtual and the real) were rated worse than with the real voice.  ...  Voice -We needed to create a synthetic voice that would be synchronized with the real storyteller (and the virtual of course).  ...
