A viseme is the most basic level of mouth and facial movements accompanying the production of phonemes visually. 32 visemes are required in order to produce all possible phoneme with the human face.

Visemes can help with understanding speech ? if the phoneme is distorted or muffled, the viseme accompanying it can help to clarify what the sound actually was. Thus, visual and auditory components work together when communicating orally.

Visemes are starting to be utilised in facial animation in virtual environments to counterpoint speech for this reason, and because they enable viable lip reading as well.
