Today I discovered the autosummarise tool on Word. So far, Windrose Hall in autosummarised form looks like this:

“Tom! Tom!”
“Kit. “Tom? “Simeon!”
Master... “Tom! Tom!”
Simeon turned to Kit. Tom nodded. “Sorry Kit... “Kit?” “Joan!?”
Kit grinned. Joan. Uncle Benjamin...”
I met Master Tom’s eyes. “I see,” said Master Tom.

“Kit...” “Joan,” said Tom.
“Talking to Simeon,” said Master Tom. “Do you?” asked Master Tom.
“For dinner?” asked Master Tom. “Joan!” “None,” said Master Tom. “Tom? “Tom...” said Kit.
“Tom? Tom?”
Kit asked.
Kit sighed. Tom said. “Tom, Kit,” she said. Master Tom sighed. “What about Master Kit?” “Yes,” said Master Tom. I was Master Tom and Master Kit’s housemaid.”
Tom nodded. “Joan. “Joan?”


Anyone feel like commenting with autosummarised version of things they've written, or classic works of literature? Unfortunately plays don't really work, as they come out like this:

GLOUCESTER
GLOUCESTER
GLOUCESTER
GLOUCESTER
GLOUCESTER
Richard!
Lord, Lord! LORDS
LORDS
LORDS

On the other hand, Pride and Prejudice looks like this:

"Bingley."
Elizabeth felt Jane's pleasure. "Miss Elizabeth Bennet."
Elizabeth looked surprised. "FITZWILLIAM DARCY"
Elizabeth was delighted. Elizabeth read on:
Elizabeth smiled.
"If! "Dearest Jane!

[Don't ask me how to find autosummarise on Word - I'm awful at describing that sort of thing. It's easy to find by googling though.]

Another fun thing to do to summerise chunks of text is to Wordle them.

A bit of googling has left me unenlightened about how exactly the Word autosummarise tool works. All I found was some text suggesting that it tries to pick out the most key or relevant sentences from the document, but nothing enabling me to guess on what basis that judgment might be made, and in particular where it is on the scale between a simple lexical criterion and an embedded state-of-the-art AI program. I don't suppose you have any idea?
