In this paper we present experiments on summarization and text simplification for poor readers, more specifically, functional illiteracy readers. We test several summarizers and use summaries as the basis of simplification strategies. We show that each simplification approach has different effects on readers of varied levels of literacy, but that all of them do improve text understanding at some level.
