In this paper, we describe a method of automatically gener- ating summary slides from a text. The slides are generated by itemizing topic/non-topic parts that are extracted from the text based on syntac- tic/case analysis. The indentations of the items are controlled according to the discourse structure, which is detected by cue phrases, identi ca- tion of word chain and similarity between two sentences. Our experiments demonstrates generated slides are far easier to read in comparison with original texts.
