This Week's Featured Advertisement: Every Traffic Light Accessible With The OKO Application

An image of a blind user holding the phone at an intersection using the OKO application to let him know of the walk or don't walk signal is on.

AYES is happy to announce the launch of our new application OKO. OKO uses artificial intelligence and the back camera to recognize the pedestrian traffic light and inform the user of the walk, don't walk and the countdown state. We bring this state back to the user with three types of feedback, visual overlay, vibrations and audio feedback.

The application does not rely on any adaptations to the traffic light and runs locally on the smartphone, this means that it works at every intersection.

We always recommend to hold the phone at chest level with the camera pointing towards the direction that you want to cross. You can then rotate your chest between 10 to 15 degrees to locate the pedestrian traffic light. The moment we see that light the software immediately reacts. This helps to orient in the right direction and also stops you from veering off into traffic because the moment you veer off the feedback stops, you reorient and receive feedback to continue in the right direction.

Download the app today at: https://apps.apple.com/be/app/oko-by-ayes/id1583614988.

1) Top 5 Most Clicked Tidbits From Last Week

🎙 Listen to the podcast.

A.) GPT-4's Mind-Blowing New Features | Jim Clyde Monge | Medium (6.2% of all clicks.)
Publisher (Di Blasi): This article briefly discusses the concept of multi-modality, which the new ChatGPT-4 model is now capable of. Outside of just being incredibly "cool," which I agree with wholeheartedly, I would like to offer another word. Transformative. I would also like to ask all Top Tech Tidbits readers to please take a moment to familiarize themselves with this new capability. Why? Because I believe that it will finally, truly, and unmistakably change the future of access as we know it. No marketing speak. No BS. Multi-modality is what will finally convert everything into everything else.
Jim Clyde Monge: If you haven't heard of Generative Pretrained Transformer (GPT), it is a set of language models made by OpenAI that can write a text that is almost indistinguishable from human writing:

B.) The Monarch Could Be The Next Big Thing In Braille | TechCrunch (5.1% of all clicks.)
For many people around the world, braille is their primary language for reading books and articles, and digital braille readers are an important part of that. The newest and fanciest yet is the Monarch, a multipurpose device that uses the startup Dot's tactile display technology. The Monarch is a collaboration between HumanWare and the American Printing House for the Blind. APH is an advocacy, education, and development organization focused on the needs of visually impaired people, and this won't be their first braille device — but it is definitely the most capable by far:

7) Is GPT-4 Worth the Subscription? Here's What You Should Know | Wired

The new algorithm is exclusive to ChatGPT Plus, OpenAI's subscriber-only service. We signed up and put it to the test:

8) 11 Tips to Take Your ChatGPT Prompts to the Next Level | Wired

Publisher (Di Blasi): Here at Mind Vault we've been using OpenAI's ChatGPT Plus to test out the most recent GPT-4 model and see what tasks it might be able to automate for us and our clients. Either now, or in the future. And I'm sure we're not alone. So I wanted to share with all of you a bit of quick information that might help you and your team on this journey. First and foremost I would like to identify something called "prompt engineering." This is the new name for what used to be called "programming" just a few months ago. The "prompts" or "inputs" that you use to make ChatGPT perform this function or that is ultimately what you are trying to compile. These now verbal "prompts" are the new "programs," and they can be created by anyone using standard language. But all prompts are not created equal. I, personally like the genie analogy for this. In almost every tale of this kind a recipient is granted 3 wishes. And without fail they are never able to get exactly what they want because they find themselves unable to describe their wish in enough detail that the genie cannot interpret it in any other way. In this scenario the genie is ChatGPT. And you are the recipient of far more than three wishes. But only if you can figure out how to properly convey your wishes to the genie. So that is what you are trying to do. Perfect your prompts. Many companies and organizations have already begun to list prompts as intellectual property. This article provides some great places to start.
Wired: Sure, anyone can use OpenAI's chatbot. But with smart engineering, you can get way more interesting results:

9) Plugins: A Massive Upgrade That Will Change ChatGPT Forever | The PyCoach | Medium

Plugins will let ChatGPT have internet access, file uploads, and third-party services. The result? ChatGPT on steroids:
https://artificialcorner.com/plugins-a-massive-upgrade-that-will-change-chatgpt-forever-e8dcdc8a8da9

10) The Tipping Point: ChatGPT Plugins Create New Opportunities And Crush Dreams | March 23, 2023 | Jorge Alcantara Barroso | Medium

The world of artificial intelligence (AI) is accelerating at breakneck speed, leaving businesses with little choice but to adapt or risk becoming obsolete. Enter OpenAI's ChatGPT plugins — the game-changing (private) release that has finally made businesses sit up and take notice. Today's release of ChatGPT plugins has unlocked a vast range of use cases and applications, creating a whole new market where 4 months ago there was nothing:

11) OpenAI Supercharges ChatGPT by Adding Web-Browsing Support | PC Magazine

The web-browsing capability arrives through new plugin support for ChatGPT, with services including Slack, Expedia, Instacart, Shopify, and Kayak signing on:
https://www.pcmag.com/news/openai-supercharges-chatgpt-by-adding-web-browsing-support

12) Now That ChatGPT Is Plugged In, Things Could Get Weird | Wired

Publisher (Di Blasi): I would like to call everyone's attention to a single paragraph within this article, which reads, "Going from text generation to taking actions on a person's behalf erodes an air gap that has so far prevented language models from taking actions. "We know that the models can be jail broken and now we're hooking them up to the internet so that it can potentially take actions," says Hendrycks. "That isn't to say that by its own volition ChatGPT is going to build bombs or something, but it makes it a lot easier to do these sorts of things."
Wired: Letting the chatbot interact with the live internet will make it more useful — and more problematic, too:
https://www.wired.com/story/chatgpt-plugins-openai/

13) GPT-5 Might Make ChatGPT Indistinguishable From A Human | BGR

Publisher (Di Blasi): I simply cannot resist interjecting here that AGI, or Artificial General Intelligence, which is defined as, "the ability of an intelligent agent to understand or learn any intellectual task that human beings or other animals can," will not, I repeat not, be achieved in GPT-5. I do however believe that it will ultimately be achieved, but if I had to give it a number based on the current ChatGPT versioning system I would shoot more for something along the lines of ChatGPT 10 to 12. And even that is just an incredibly wild guess. Many different technological innovations are currently underway that will change the landscape of AI going forward. Just as AI will in turn transform those innovations. And only when that loop begins in earnest will we truly be on our way to achieving AGI.
BGR: ChatGPT got a major upgrade a few weeks ago, with GPT-4 giving the AI chatbot additional impressive powers. But OpenAI is already working on the next major software upgrades for ChatGPT, with GPT-5 reportedly due this winter. If a report about the GPT-5 abilities is correct, Open AI might be on the verge of achieving a massive milestone for ChatGPT. The generative AI might become indistinguishable from a human after the GPT-5 upgrade as it reaches artificial general intelligence (AGI):

19) Siri Is Awesome When Combined With ChatGPT: A Tutorial | Proper Honest Tech | YouTube

Siri is good because it's easily accessible on your Apple devices, but it's not that smart. ChatGPT is good because it's really smart, but accessing it isn't as easy as it is to access Siri. That's why in this video, I'm going to show you how you can combine the two, to create essentially Siri, but better, and perform the kind of searches that you saw at the start of this video. Stick with me until the end of the video, even if you think this all sounds a bit complicated, I promise it's easier to do than you think, and I'm going to walk you through the entire process:

26) We Can Now Read Text Formatting In Braille | Devin Prater | AppleVis

In iOS 16.4, we can now read text formatting in Braille. This is most easily noticed in the Books app. To enable it, go to Braille settings in VoiceOver settings, and enable Text Formatting. You'll now see any italics, bold, ETC in your book. This works with apps that present text in a page format, not separating formatting into different elements. Kindle does not appear to show the text formatting to VoiceOver, only the plain text. Safari and other apps put differently formatted text in a different element on the page:

Closing: April 7, 2023 | Microsoft Seeking Developer Feedback About ARIA Live Regions

If you use a screen reader, there's a good chance you've used a web technology known as a live region. The short version of what this technology does is that it allows web developers to have screen readers automatically read certain text. This might be automatic reading of chat messages in a chat environment, notification about the number of characters you've entered in an edit box as you type each character and much more. While live regions are not the only technology that can cause this automatic reading, the vast majority of what you've likely experienced does come as part of a live region. Microsoft is seeking feedback on live regions in some of their work with the W3C standards organization:

Closing: April 23, 2023 | Independent Living Skills Survey | Nadine Riches

Hi all. I am looking for people who are blind or have low vision to complete a survey for me. I am exploring how this community develops independent living skills currently, and how this could be improved in the future, as this is something I have been hugely passionate about for some time. The survey is open to anyone who is blind or has low vision, regardless of the country they reside in. It is open until Sunday the 23rd of April, and you can opt into a draw to win a voucher valued at $200 AUD (or foreign currency equivalent) for your time and insights. You'll find the link below, and please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns. I'd also love you to share this with your own networks, as the more responses I get the better. Thanks heaps for any help you can provide!

Join Internet Archive's founder Brewster Kahle for a virtual book talk with author & professor of law Jessica Litman.

What are the effects of such laws on the exchange of information in a free society? Professor Jessica Litman, the John F. Nickoll Professor of Law, is the author of Digital Copyright and the co-author, with Jane Ginsburg and Mary Lou Kevlin, of the casebook Trademarks and Unfair Competition Law: Cases and Materials.

➜ Classified Advertisement: Every Traffic Light Accessible With The OKO Application

AYES is happy to announce the launch of our new application OKO. OKO uses artificial intelligence and the back camera to recognize the pedestrian traffic light and inform the user of the walk, don't walk and the countdown state. We bring this state back to the user with three types of feedback, visual overlay, vibrations and audio feedback.

The application does not rely on any adaptations to the traffic light and runs locally on the smartphone, this means that it works at every intersection.

We always recommend to hold the phone at chest level with the camera pointing towards the direction that you want to cross. You can then rotate your chest between 10 to 15 degrees to locate the pedestrian traffic light. The moment we see that light the software immediately reacts. This helps to orient in the right direction and also stops you from veering off into traffic because the moment you veer off the feedback stops, you reorient and receive feedback to continue in the right direction.

OKO provides an accessible traffic light at every intersection. And, best of all, all OKO data is completely anonymized, ensuring your personal privacy at all times.

The OKO app is fully independent from infrastructure and does not require a Wi-Fi or Cellular connection to operate at full capacity.

About: WayAround is the app for your smart device that provides on-demand details about everyday things. The simple tag-and-scan approach lets you quickly and easily identify things around you. It also provides extra details, like how something works or when it expires. The result? Doing more of the things you want, with more confidence and more independence.

All the information you want with just a tap of your phone. No more waiting around to ask someone. You need just two things to get started: The free mobile app for iOS or Android and some of our smart WayTags®.

Accessible labels for the blind, deafblind, and anyone with vision loss. Your biggest problem isn't poor eyesight. It's that so much of the information in the world is visual. But you shouldn't have to wait around for someone else to get the information you need. Or carry around a bulky, outdated device. There is a better way to get accurate and complete information every time. So you can reduce stress and gain independence.

About: Our Scope of Products: We specialize in 3 lines of products, all intended to assist in access to adaptive electronics, enhance experiences for guide dog teams, and offer practical solutions for organization and travel with a variety of leather bags, pouches, and backpacks. Then there are the random products that are included, just for fun! We enjoy working with our customers 1-on-1 to their money is well spent and not wasted on something they may not use. In thinking about our customers and whether we will carry a product our guiding motto is that it must be: practical, affordable, simple, tested, and accessible (the pasta principle) and it seems to work very well.

What We Do: We bring our business either via zoom, phone, or to your conference or convention, to give each customer a chance for questions and where possible, "hands on" evaluation of the merchandise. Kae and I test and use each product as blind users before we put it in our catalog. In the case of products for guide and service dogs, our own three guides, Thor, Debra and Melody, are engaged in the process of evaluating the usefulness, durability, and/or fun of the product. We want each of our products to be useful, accessible, affordable, and, whenever possible, fun! Our inventory is constantly changing, so a visit to us is never the same experience twice!

Editorial Contributor: Ben Moxey (Volunteer)

Editor Since: January 1st 2022

Location: Newcastle, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editor to Top Tech Tidbits, Ben is also an Access and Technology Advisor for Guide Dogs, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory (NSW/ACT).

Hi, Tidbits readers, my name's Ben Moxey and I'm based in Newcastle, Australia. I'm really happy to be part of the Tidbits Team and look forward to supporting this valuable publication.

A bit about me and how I came to work in the BVI area. I grew up with very low vision in one eye due to retinal issues and relied on magnification and speech throughout school. They also tried to teach me Braille, but let's just say that I wasn't the best student! I was determined to use my remaining vision, no matter how impractical it was becoming.

When I was 20, the other retina came off and I've now been totally blind for about 21 years. This is when my love for assistive technology, and technology in general, really kicked in. I'll be honest, I was a bit of a computer nerd anyway, but I could quickly see how technology was my key to enhanced independence and lifestyle. I embraced screen readers, early smart phones and mobility aids. I even finally realised the huge value of Braille and finished off the course, though I'm still pretty slow!

Long story short (not one of my strong points), I've worked in the BVI area for 12 years with much of that spent reviewing, recommending and teaching assistive technology that suits the individual. I'm currently a proud employee of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT where I was the Practice Lead for the assistive technology service, and I've now moved into an Access and Technology Advisor role. Basically, this involves a strong focus on accessibility and technology innovation.

Feel free to look me up on LinkedIn, but I'll warn you in advance that I haven't given my profile the recommended attention!

All the best and happy reading!

Editorial Contributor: David Woodbridge (Volunteer)

Volunteer Editorial Contributor Since: February 6, 2023

Location: Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editor to Top Tech Tidbits, David also serves as an Editor to the Access Information News Publication and is also the National Commercial Assistive Technology Advisor for Vision Australia where he has worked since 1990. Over this time he has assisted people who are blind or vision impaired in their home, education, and work settings to take advantage of the benefits of using assistive and main stream technology.

In the last seventeen years, he has also been involved with evaluating technology for use by people who are blind or vision impaired covering both low and high tech equipment (including Microsoft, Samsung, Google, Amazon, and Apple). David is also one of the key spokespersons for Vision Australia relating to technology.

He has been an Apple Ambassador for Apple Australia since 2009 with a group of other Ambassadors / Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE)'s covering the range of Apple's Accessibility solutions throughout Australia.

David produces a range of podcasts (since 2011) covering Apple and other technologies which are distributed on his own podcast (http://davidwoodbr.podbean.com). In addition, he also has a regular Talking Tech program (since 2013) which can be heard every Tuesday at 4:30 Eastern Summer Time on Vision Australia Radio Melbourne (available online) or via https://omny.fm/shows/talking-tech-vision-australia-radio

David also runs a weekly Tech Monday where people can chat about assistive and main stream technology, share information, and any tips and tricks.

David lost his sight when he was 8 years old and had to learn Braille. Since then, he completed high school, went to Sydney University receiving a Social Work degree, spent 4 years drug and alcohol counselling, and then moved into his current job.

As a person who is blind, David believes that as a user of the technology that he recommends to others, that he is well situated to look at the strengths and shortcomings of the assistive technology that he comes across in both his professional and personal life, in particular, mainstream technology that is accessible.
