Several simple prediction schemes are presented for systems intended to facili- tate text production for handicapped individuals. The schemes are based on single-subject language models, where the system is self-adapting to the past language use of the subject. Sentence position, the immediately preceding one or two words, and initial letters of the desired word are cues which may be used by the systems.
