Depending on the content and the context, users can require several pauses before being able to completely consume content such as online articles, books, audio/video, or multimedia content. When returning to the content after a break, it can be difficult for users to pick up seamlessly where they left off. These difficulties are exacerbated if a long period has passed after the last pause as the users might not remember details of the content that they’ve already viewed. This disclosure describes techniques to automatically add bookmarks within multimedia content when a user pauses consumption. At a later time when the user resumes the content, an automatically generated summary of the previously consumed portions of the content is presented.
