Chapter 6. Making the Most of Research S... > Scrutinizing Document Statistics

Scrutinizing Document Statistics

In addition to the standard reference book features included in Word, you have several other electronic reference tools that you can use to analyze your documents. Namely, you can instruct Word to quickly summarize the content in a document by using the AutoSummarize feature, you can analyze a document’s readability level using Flesch Reading Ease and FleschKincaid Grade Level scores, and you can display word count statistics to track the length of your text while you work.

Getting to the Point with AutoSummarize

Word can automatically summarize key points in documents, enabling you to create brief versions of documents that readers can quickly scan. You’ll find that AutoSummarize works best on structured documents such as reports, white papers, technical documents, articles, and so forth. AutoSummarize doesn’t work especially well for fiction, correspondence, and other more loosely structured documents.
