10 Best AI Text Summarizer Tools

We have long talked about producing texts with more ease and in fewer time thanks to artificial intelligence. But it turns out, AI can also help you read and comprehend texts faster.

If you want to save time reading a long and complicated piece of content, there are AI summarizers that will give you a synthesized version of it.

On the other hand, you can also produce a summary of your own content to promote your point and grab the reader’s attention in just a matter of seconds.

Here, in this list of the best AI summarizers you’ll see plenty of options for both needs.

Let’s jump right onto it.

6. TLDR This


TLDR is short for “too long; didn’t read” and while this internet slang can be used to criticize a piece of writing as overly long, it is often used to give a helpful summary of such text. That is the purpose of this tool.

Something ContentBot still has to work on, however, it’s translation. They are currently using Google Translate which we know it’s not ideal. So they are exploring other options and hopefully soon they’ll have multiple translations at once.

Final words

So now you know you don’t have to suffer with that university reading or that long boring book. The summarizers are out there for you to get the main ideas and everything truly important.

I will, still, suggest trying your skimming and scanning skills at certain moments.
