Problem statement: Deaf and dumb needs assistance from a technical box that takes movements of lips to identify the words. This technical article provided appropriate model implementation of flexible lip model for better visual lip reading system. Approach: From the frame sequence of words, Active Shape Model (ASM) based lip model provided local tracking and extraction of geometric lip-feature. Two geometric criteria define required geometric features and its variations in the sequence. Results: The feature established machine classification using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), a relative weight finder. AHP presents weight vector to fuzzy classifier to decide the video frame sequence belonging to a respective word. Conclusion: The suggested model tested on a total of 5 different sample databases results in 83.2% accuracy over the other combinational algorithms.
