Script to create a quiz in Anki

Recommended Posts

I am learning English.

I am reading now an interesting novel : The Information by Martis Amis.

Whn I find a word that don't understand I write down in a txt file. 

My target is with an autoit script launch the lines of the txt file with the word I don't undertand to search in a predeterminated dictionary to see the meaning.

After the meaning is added to the txt file or similar file (apkg is the format file used by Anki) and after create a quiz to learn vocabulary by the space repetition method (Leitner method). 

Can you give me your first opinion about the viability to make a script for this purpose ?


Best Regards

Only part i think it's going to be harder is the part of automatic search in a dictionary.

Other than that i can totally see a script where you press a hotkey that spawns an inputbox, where you write the word, the script then searches online, for example, and retrieves the result and saves it in an .ini file.

Then you can at any moment press another hotkey for example, and get a list of all the words and their meaning for consult.

It's gonna take some work, for me, the worst part is the online bit, im not much into that, maybe for others that's the easiest.

So, in short, i think is doable.
