Text recognition with soundplay

Recommended Posts



I would like to start by letting you know that my knowledge of scripting or Autoit3 is rather limited, what I want to create is a script that recognizes a specific word in a specific area and then plays kat.wav once.

the coordinates for the box:

0.800        400,800
random text
random text
kat <- (SoundPlay(@WindowsDir & "\media\kat.wav", 1))
random text
0,1000               400,1000

What I don't know is how I make is a specific area where text will be recognized and then play the media kat.wav once Autoit3 recognizes the text, as you can see my knowledge is quite limited.

I have used google and autoitscript's search engine without finding anything that would help me, mostly i just got confused by what i tried to understand.

Welocme to the AutoIt forum. :)

AutoIt is not good at OCR - but it can usually read the text from a control. In which app and what area is the text you are trying to parse? :huh:


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Thanks for the fast reply, sorry i forgot to mention that.

Using Flashplayer with Chrome, the area I'm trying to parse is litterally a chat window
