I don't use CATWA, so I don't know the answer, but I do know that CATWA has a very active group in-world with CSR's available for answering questions and providing help.  Have you asked in the CATWA user group?

moirakathleen san、Thank you for answering the question.
I did not know such a group.
Do you know the location of CATWA user group?

The group is called CATWA HEAD Friends, and it is free to join. You can use the search function in the viewer to search groups for it, display the group profile, and then click the JOIN button to join the group.  Then, you can use the 'CHAT' button from the group profile page to ask your question.

Lip sync will not be so much a function of the head as it is the basic avatar. Animation of the jaw and possibly lips is something the viewer triggers.

AFAIK the trigger is pulled when we type or push the mic button. The viewer and servers do not listen and work out how the mouth should move. So... sync is a bit weak. At best we can have the mouth imitate talking with a standard animation. Push to talk and the lips move whether you speak into the mic or not.

There is no "standard animation" for talking that can be replaced. See REF

The answer is in whether Catwa overrides the viewers basic animations for talking with its various expressions. Otherwise the movement of the Classic avatar will translate to the mesh head. If it does override, you should be able to turn off the Catwa animations and allow the viewer to control the talking animation, which will give you as much sync as is possible in SL.

Catwa Bento heads can animate with speech or typing, but the animations will not line up perfectly with the shapes your real life mouth is making. That's simply not possible to do in SL, as Nalates has already explained.

To enable the Catwa talking animation:

  1. Wear the Catwa HUD Animations F v3.2 (for female head) or M v3.2 (for male head) from your Catwa head folder
  2. In the Talk Animation section of that HUD, click the 'power button' so that it's green
  3. In your Catwa head folder, find the three gestures titled CATWA Voice Talk Anim 1, 2, and 3. Right-click each one and select 'Activate'
  4. Your avatar's lips will now move when you either talk on voice or type in local chat

If you want a singing animation rather than a talking one, Catwa sells a singing HUD at her mainstore.
