Apple’s Summarize Service Makes Sure You Get Your Point Across

Apple’s Summarize Service Makes Sure You Get Your Point Across

Sometimes when we write, we often include too many details and our focus gets lost. On the Mac, Apple’s summarize service can help proofread your work to make sure you’re saying what you intend.

You’ll have to enable it in Service Preferences if it isn’t already on. Highlight some text and then right-click and choose Summarize in the Services menu. You’ll get a shortened version of your document with what the Mac thinks are the key phrases and text.

A computer can’t understand what you are trying to say, but it uses title sentences and strips out filler words. If it’s incorrect, you should go back and double-check your text. Like other items in the Services menu, this function doesn’t work in Google Docs.

Remember, though: at the end, only you know what you’re trying to say. A computer won’t be smarter than you—it’s just a mediocre replacement for a real, human proofreader (if you don’t have one handy).

Check out the other uses of the summarize service.
