Provide summarized content generated automatically

This feature is to reduce text content with automatic summarization algorithms in order to create summaries or keywords that retain the most important points of the original content. Providing condensed content can make it easier for people with visual or cognitive impairments to read documents and webpages, as well as help all people speed up reading, searching, and understanding.
