If you have a very long document or a web page where you want to get the gist of it, but do not have the time to read or scan, you can use the excellent service "Summarizing" (Summarize) in Mac OS X to summarize the text.
Summarizing is adjustable, which means you can choose which one heavy or light you want to be the summary. You can choose paragraphs or phrases and adjust the length of the summary, which can vary from a simple condensed document outline, a heap of text notes in question, or anything in between.
Summarizing must be enabled in Mac before you can use and then just a matter of learning to use the sum function to provide a brief overview of the document, web page or any selected text. We'll show you how to enable this feature useful and how to use it.
Summarizing activating Mac OS
First of all, you must enable the service to summarize. This exists in almost all versions including MacOS and Mac OS X:
- Open the "System Preferences" from the main menu and go to "Keyboard"
- Go to "Services" and select the tab "Shortcuts"
- Scroll down until you find "Summarizing" and activate the checkbox next to it
- Close the preferences panel
- Select the text you want to summarize, if you want to summarize an entire document or a web page, select all the text (command + A to select all)
- Click the selected text and go to the menu "Services"
- Select "Summarize" to display the service function summary.
