    In this paper an attempt has been made to predict the gaze fixation duration at source text words using supervised learning method, namely Support Vector Machine. The machine learning models used in the present work make use of lexical, syntactic and semantic information for predicting the gaze fixation duration. Different features are extracted from the data and models are built by combining the features. Our best set up achieves close to 50% classification accuracy.
