AI Summary: Highlighted Text

Please note: This feature is available for subscription licenses and student licenses and requires that you have a free MAXQDA account and have signed up for the AI Assist beta program. For more information on AI Assist, please see here.

AI Assist lets you automatically summarize a selected passage of text in the “Document Browser.” The summary is saved in a new in-document memo assigned to the selected text passage.

Starting AI Assist in the “Document Browser” to summarize a selected text passage

To create a summary of a selected text passage: 

  1. Right-click the selection and select AI Assist: Summarize Selection from the context menu.
  2. In the dialog that appears, select the desired language, length and type for the summary. 

After clicking OK, the summary is automatically created and presented in a new in-document memo. In the memo, you can customize the summary as needed.

Please note:

  • AI Assist provides very good results for very many use cases. Nevertheless, it is important that you check the results.
  • If you analyze texts with critical content (violence, hate speech, bullying, etc.), summaries may not be created.
  • Usually, you will receive the same or very similar summary for the same segments. However, it may happen that a summary is different from previous ones because the generative language model used provides dynamic results and because AI Assist is continuously optimized.
