In this paper, we present a realistic facial animation framework for web and mobile platforms. The proposed system converts the text into 3D face animation with synthetic voice, ensuring synchronization of the head and eye movements with emotions and word flow of a sentence. The expression tags embedded in the input sentences turn into given emotion on the face while the virtual face is speaking. The final face motion is obtained by interpolating the keyframes over time to generate transitions between facial expressions. Visual results of the animation are sufficient for web and mobile environments. The proposed system may contribute to the development of various new generation e-Health applications such as intelligent communication systems, human-machine interfaces and interfaces for handicapped people.
