NPC Auto Lip Sync, how?

There wasn’t much when I did a search. I was told it would happen automatically if I used an entity serverside and it was a wav file. This hasn’t worked. Am I required to do face poser? Whichever the case, I need to have an NPC that has access to a soundboard that would let a user select which file to play via a derma panel…if I have a scene does that limit me? Or do I just need to look at lua animation tool?
