Summarization (Beta)


In Beta

This feature is in Beta. If you have questions or comments, email support@symbl.ai.

Symbl distills important messages and creates succinct Summaries for long conversations. You can get these Summaries using the Summary API.

Summaries help you save time by analyzing the contents of a conversation that might have several pages of transcripts.

Note

Real-time Summaries are not currently supported.

Example

The following sample is a multi-line transcript and its corresponding Summary created by the Summary API:

Recorded Transcript and Summary created by the API

The Summary API generates high-quality Summaries for longer meetings. Current best practice is to use the Summary API for longer meetings.

If the number of words in a conversation is below 50 or the number of sentences below 3, the Summary is not created.

Where can I find the Summary API?

You can enable the Summary API for Async APIs using the following endpoints:

APISummary Endpoint
Async Text API (POST/PUT)https://api.symbl.ai/v1/process/text?enableSummary=true
Async Audio API (POST/PUT)https://api.symbl.ai/v1/process/audio?enableSummary=true
Async Audio URL API (POST/PUT)https://api.symbl.ai/v1/process/audio/url?enableSummary=true
Async Video API (POST/PUT)https://api.symbl.ai/v1/process/video?enableSummary=true
Async Video URL API (POST/PUT)https://api.symbl.ai/v1/process/video/url?enableSummary=true

When one of the preceding API jobs is complete, the corresponding Summary can be obtained by sending a GET request to the Summary API. See the Summary API Documentation.
