Lip-sync
Lip sync
Lip sync
(short for lip synchronization) is a technical term for matching a speaking or singing person's lip movements with prerecorded sung or spoken vocals that listeners hear, either through the sound reinforcement system in a live performance or via television, computer or cinema speakers in other cases. The term can refer to any of a number of different techniques and processes, in the context of live performances and audiovisual recordings.

Many video games make extensive use of lip-synced sound files to create an immersive environment in which on-screen characters appear to be speaking
