The shape of the vocal tract can be controlled in a number of ways which usually involves modifying the position of the speech articulators, such as the tonguejawand lips. Continuous variation of the vocal tract length in a Kelly—Lochbaum type speech production model. One of the syjthesis commercial articulatory speech synthesis systems is the NeXT -based system originally developed and marketed by Trillium Sound Research, a spin-off company of the University of Calgarywhere much of the original research was conducted.

A full 3D articulatory synthesis model has been described by Olov Engwall.

The first software articulatory synthesizer regularly used for laboratory experiments was developed at Haskins Laboratories in the mids by Philip RubinTom Baer, and Paul Mermelstein. Biomechanical modeling of articulators such as the tongue has been pioneered by a number of scientists, including Reiner Wilhelms-Tricarico [5]Yohan Payan [6] and Jean-Michel Gerard [7]Jianwu Dang and Kiyoshi Honda [8].
