AI Text Processing

PhraseExpress supports variety of AI engines which you configure in this PhraseExpress settings dialog:

To enable an AI engine:
  1. Open the PhraseExpress main program window and select File » Settings » AI text processing.
  2. Select the desired AI engine from the popup. You can use multiple engines. One is configured after the other.
  3. Configure the AI engine as described below.

PhraseExpress itself does not perform any AI processing itself but integrates 3rd party AI engines into the user interface.

Due to the early stage of AI technology, the AI text output can be nonsense and the feature is considered experimental. It is provided "as-is" and it is not part of the official PhraseExpress specification.

OpenAI/ChatGPT

Video tutorial

Using the commercial OpenAI service requires an "API key" which you receive after registering an account at OpenAI.com. The API key must be entered in the PhraseExpress settings:

  1. Register an account at OpenAI.com.
  2. Go to your OpenAI user profile and create a personal "API key" (example: 43943f3fd-r46f-0kqeb-55c-6lk3l2s183ab8).
  3. Copy & paste the API key into the PhraseExpress settings.

A green check mark indicates successful activation in PhraseExpress:

If you don't find this checkmark after entering your API key, check for typos or excess characters or spaces. Also, check your internet connection and account status with OpenAI. We can't provide any support here as we do not operate the OpenAI service.

Your text will transmitted over the internet to the "OpenAI" online service (OpenAI privacy policy) via a https port 443 to "https://api.openai.com/v1" or "https://api.openai.com/v1/chat" .

PhraseExpress itself does not perform the AI processing but integrates the 3rd party service OpenAI into the user interface. Fees may apply for each text processing.
