What is the Xerox Summarizer App?

Today's world can feel like an information overload. At points in your life, there’s simply not enough time to read everything. This is when you’d need someone, or something to help summarize it in a quick informative format. Xerox has an app or this.  The purpose is got give more easily digestible insightful summaries. The goals are also to be more productive, improve accessibility, and being more sustainable by reducing the amount of large email attachments.

With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), Xerox Summarizer condenses dozens or even hundreds of pages by reducing the original scanned document to a percentage of the original or can create a short and concise interpretation of the source text. A quick and useful way to summarize textual data to reduce reading time, help with research, or identify the main idea of material for a relevant and fast uptake of information.

Step 1: Open the Xerox Summarizer App

Step 2: Load paper into the document feeder.

Step 3: Select ‘summarization type’

There are a few summarization-type options available.

  • Extractive: Reduce the length of your original document losing key points.
  • Abstractive: Receive a short, concise interpretation of your original document with AI-driven technology.



Step 4: Select ‘percentage’

You then can select the length of the original document. This ranges from 5%-90% of the document to be used.



Step 5: Select ‘domain’

In this step, you’ll be selecting the type of language you want the document to read in. Not language as in Spanish, German, or English, but choosing what background you’d want the document to be in.

  • Insurance: Extract and analyze critical information contained in policies, clauses, and more.
  • Legal: Concise summaries of cases and minutes help you get more out of every billable hour.

You can also preview your document and decide if you want to do one- or two-sided scanning. You can also select the original size and

finally, choose if you want your results printed or emailed out.


Step 6: Select ‘preview’
Once you hit preview, the printer will start scanning and analyzing your document. Once it has been scanned and understood the document and preview will appear on the screen of the percentage of document you wanted summarized.

Step 7: Select ‘continue’

If you like the results displayed on the screen, then you can press continue and it will either email or print the results based on your selection in step 5.
