Is it possible to superimpose text on the screen?

I guess you might call this "displaying text with an alpha channel". In video we would call it "keying" or "chromakeying".)

While searching for info about GDI+ I ran across this YouTube video entitled "Drawing Text on the Screen with GDI+ and AutoHotkey". (I jumped to the video before realizing it pertained to AHK). Nonetheless I skimmed through it and wondered if it's possible to do the same thing using AutoIt.  Here's a screen cap of the AHK code and resulting superimposed text.  I should add that the author subsequently closed the SciTE window, and the text, "Hey, I did it!", remained superimposed over the Windows desktop.
