MS Windows - create a ticker tape scrolling banner

Is there a way to create a bar that runs across the bottom of the screen that will scroll text from right to left like a ticker tape?  I am running Windows 7.

I tried a couple.  They do not give an option for the user to put in his own text.  All tickers I've found upload the data automatically from internet news broadcasters and such.

What I'd like is a ticker that is fed from a simple text file and all it does is loops indefinitely through all the text.

Here's an example of a ticker.  

http://easy-desk-ticker.en.softonic.com/

It allows a user-specified URL of an RSS feed (see attached screenshot).  Is there a "work around" with URLs, where I would enter a filepath to a text file that would then feed the ticker?

nobus, I just figured out that EasyDeskTicker does, in fact, have the option that I want: it accepts text from a locally stored file.

Thanks for your help with this!  --Andres
