How it works
The AutoSummary Tools in Microsoft Office Word 2007 can highlight and assemble key points of a document. For example, a student could use Office Word 2007 to create an automatic summary of a number of long science articles or to quickly create an abstract for a finished history report. The student runs AutoSummarize and then edits the summary.
AutoSummarize analyzes a document and then assigns a score to each sentence. Students can decide the amount of detail they want (e.g., a summary of 10 sentences or 20 sentences), and AutoSummarize uses the scoring system to extract the key points and assemble them automatically. After AutoSummarize finishes, the student can edit the results to their liking.
Using AutoSummarize requires first adding the command to the Quick Access toolbar.
