In daily life, the use of language often occurs in a visual context. A large number of cognitive science studies have shown that visual and linguistic information processing modules do not work independently, but have complex interactions. The present paper centers on the impact of visual information on language processing, and first reviews research progress on the impact of visual information on speech comprehension, speech production and verbal communication. Secondly, the mechanism of visual information affecting language processing is discussed. Finally, computational models of visually situated language processing are reviewed, and the future research directions are prospected.

Key words: visual information processing, language processing, speech comprehension, speech production, verbal communication
