If an NLG system needs to be put in place as soon as possible it is not always possible to know in advance who the users of a system are or what kind of information will interest them. This paper describes the development of a system and contextualized text for unknown users. We describe the development, design and initial findings with a system for unknown users that allows the users to design their own contextualised text.
