We studied new utterance support system working on an information terminal for people who have speech handicaps. We made word prediction and added fixed phrases from the dictionary including phrases often used in daily life conversations and class 2-gram using co-occurrence frequencies of parts of speech as additional functions to make it more effective and faster. And we did evaluation experiment with other methods.
