Happy New Year everyone! I hope it will be prosperous for all of us!
During the holidays I heard buzz of a new AI bot that could do wondrous things. So I decided to check it out for myself.
Let me start off by saying that I used the open AI chat GPT service on the following devices:
Intel MacBook Pro using safari.
Apple iPhone SE second edition using Safari.
There are apps in the App Store that claim to be based on the open AI chat GPT standard. I have found that those apps are a waste of time as they are looking to make you pay for some sort of subscription to the service. There is no subscription fee for using chat GPT!
You will have to set up an account for yourself on their website which can be found at https://chat.openai.com
The easiest way to use this site is to find the multi line edit field. Single finger double tap in that field and begin typing what you would like to say to the bot.
** a quick note about the apps that I found in the App Store.
There are some apps in the App Store that claim to be based on chat GPT.
Many of these apps have a subscription model attached to them. I noticed that one app had a subscription price of $8.99 per week! Do not waste your time and money on these apps! Once you have your account created in safari save that page to your home screen. Click on the share sheet. Then select add to home screen. Save it now you have the webpage set up as an app that you can go to just by tapping on it.
On my MacBook, I created a bookmark in safari that is similar.
The responses that you get back have some detail as well as new words for how it was created.
I have asked it to create television scripts based on old TV shows that I used to enjoy that are no longer around. It has been fun and creating DND characters. It is very good for those who are looking to work on writing. The app can review your writing and also make suggestions or totally rewrite it completely. There's so much more to be said about this phenomenal new research product and where it can take us in the future. I have spoken enough about this for now so I will let the following text that was generated by the bot , speak for itself. the following is a question I asked the bot to write about the accessibility of Chat GPT for blind and low vision users and this is what I received:**write a 300 word description of Chat Gpt and accessibility for blind and low vision users
GPT (short for "Generative Pre-trained Transformer") is a natural language processing model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text. One application of GPT is a chatbot, which is a computer program designed to simulate conversation with human users, especially over the Internet.
When it comes to accessibility for blind and low vision users, chatbots can be a useful tool for providing information and assistance. However, it is important to ensure that the chatbot is designed and implemented in a way that is accessible to these users.
One way to make a chatbot more accessible is to use text-to-speech technology to read the chatbot's responses out loud to the user. This allows blind and low vision users to hear the information and interact with the chatbot through speech, rather than having to rely on visual cues.
Another way to improve accessibility is to make the chatbot's interface and controls easy to use with a screen reader. This can include using proper headings and labels, as well as providing alternative text for images.
It is also important to consider the language and tone of the chatbot's responses, as well as the complexity of the information being presented. The chatbot should use clear, concise language and avoid jargon or technical terms that may be difficult for some users to understand.
Overall, chatbots have the potential to be a valuable resource for blind and low vision users, but it is important to carefully design and implement them in an accessible manner. By taking these steps, chatbots can help to provide information and assistance to a wider range of users, including those with disabilities.

Do not be taken in by apps in the App Store claiming to offer pro level features that do not exist for Chet GPT.
The service is currently free and in research beta mode.
The possibilities for these types of applications are endless! I look forward to hearing what other people have to say about such services.
Thank you for reading. Stay safe
