Overview

Extract readability scores and basic stats about unstructured text. You can use these scores to determine how easy text is to understand for readers.

Applicable Scenarios and Problems

Readability scores tell you how interpretable a document is. If someone sends you a long email with a bunch of SAT words and technical jargon, you're not likely to read it vs if someone is direct and succinct. This algorithm can help you do that

Usage

Input

Any unstructured text

Output

If you need just one score use the automatedReadabilityIndex score. Scores that sound like people's names (e.g. fleschKincaidGradeLevel) are standardized scores that you can lookup on WikiPedia The other scores are all fairly self explanatory by the name.
