pixel checksum question

Recommended Posts

abletec

Hi folks:

I'm a real newby to autoit, so if this seems elementary, please forgive me. I'm blind & therefore use a screenreader. I'm also studying computer forensics, & am using a program called Forensic Toolkit. The program has listviews where files can be checked/unchecked. Sighted users can easily see the checks in the checkbox, but these are not being picked up by the screenreader. Quite obviously, that's a problem. I was thinking about using the pixel checksum function to see if there might be any difference between checked & unchecked status. Does autoit have a way of getting the pixel location of the filename w/focus in a listview? Also, might there be any suggestions about integrating autoit w/screenreader function, e.g., somehow using autoit to make a screenreader speak? I know, these are not common uses & probably won't interest many but any help is appreciated.

There are specific functions to access ListView controls in a window. Read the help file for all the functions that start with _GuiCtrlListView, for example.

What? You want to make a screenreader act as a screenreader? Are you running Window-Eyes, or JAWS? They don't need AutoIt's help to read out screen content.
