CoCounsel can summarize information.
A. How the AI works
Generally, summarizing follows these steps.
You provide files.
You indicate the summary length, whether brief, detailed, or comprehensive.
CoCounsel reads every word of each file.
CoCounsel provides the selected summary.
You may export the results as a Word Document or copy the results to paste somewhere else.
B. Getting Started
There are a few ways to get started.
1. Just ask or add files
To request a summary, just ask CoCounsel. Use normal sentences like you would to a colleague. You may also add files to get started. CoCounsel will then tell you what it needs.
2. Select examples
CoCounsel reminds you what it can do. Select “Summarize.” As you chat, CoCounsel will suggest specific work based on your request. Select "Give me examples" or open the right sidebar.
C. Request a summary
1. Select a summary length
A paragraph summary of each file.
A bulleted summary of a range of pages CoCounsel identifies within each file (e.g., pages 1-3, 4-6).
A bulleted summary of every page within each file.
2. Consider your intended use
You can summarize any information with CoCounsel, including deposition transcripts, medical records, law review articles, statutes, contracts, and case files, just to name a few. So consider your intended use.
1. Input limits
.doc, .docx, .pdf, .txt
500 MB .pdfs
20 MB text files
2. Output limits
The summary will be the selected length.
3. Focused summaries
CoCounsel does not focus its summaries on specific content.
4. Compare and contrast documents
CoCounsel reviews each document on its own. This means CoCounsel cannot complete requests that require CoCounsel to compare or contrast documents or contracts.
5. Summarizing handwriting
Generally, if a human can read handwritten text, then CoCounsel should be able to read it, too. This means CoCounsel’s ability to read handwritten text can vary, depending on legibility.
6. Summarizing pasted text
CoCounsel cannot use its summarize capabilities for pasted text.
It is impossible to list all of CoCounsel's capabilities, but please use these samples to consider how CoCounsel will help with your work.
2. Refine results
After reviewing CoCounsel’s response, continue chatting with CoCounsel to refine the results.
