AI Paraphrasing on Emacs
If you are like me and do all your writing on Emacs, you probably setup spelling & grammar checks on Emacs already. Sometimes you want Emacs to go a step further. What if Emacs can assist writers who need to paraphrase large text blocks — like replacing words with synonyms?
A while ago I built aide.el, a lightweight elisp wrapper for OpenAI. aide.el could accept a region or the entire buffer and send it to OpenAI for autocompletion.
However, autocompletion is not really paraphrasing. Even though we could build the instructions or examples in the prompt to tell AI to paraphrase it, it does not always work.
Let's see the new function
(The sample text was taken from CNN.com)
After you select a region of text, invoke the command, and send it to OpenAI, and replace the region with the result.
With this new function, it should help your text editing and supercharge your writing!
P.S. aide.el is open-source and hosted in Github.
