if u mean like a puppeteer thing, i highly doubt theres one for free. ive seen those before but i would think that they rigged the face manually anyway. ive seen some1 make a script that holds your phenomes or something which makes it easier to use your morphs. my suggestion is that u learn how to animate using morph targets.  from what ive read u make the morphs into the mouth shapes called phenomes which are like a "buh" sound and a 'th' sound and everything u can make. then you sinc up to the speech using all ur phenomes. good luck

From what I've seen of Anim8or tutorials on the subject, morphs ARE the easy way.

The only ones i've tried b4 were related 2 poser.
 Poser4 had a plugin, which worked fairly well, but the finished lipsync really needed tweaking here and there, to make it look more realistic.
 Poser7 has it built in, but unfortunately, it really sucks and they need to go back to the drawing board on that one.

 Manually posing your phenomes gives far better results than either of those.

Some time ago, an anim8or member made a program which you could use to lipsync models using morphs. Papanim8or orsomething it was called.
You made a morph with you models face or all the letters and used the program to animate those behind eachother. Worked pretty good...

EDIT: It's Papaga8or made by neirao, this is the link Papaga8or tool - Automatize your morphs animations
