M$ Windows based screen "text checking" s/w?
Posted on 2014-02-06
A strange request perhaps. No idea where to post it!
We have a browser based PC/Server monitoring system (provided by Centrastage.com). Unbelievably it doesn't have the ability to make an audible noise if an alert is displayed on the on-screen 'dashboard'. Not good if your backs are turned away from the monitoring screen for any length of time (yes-- I and others have requested this feature).
In the meantime; are there any little utils out there (or browser plugins) that can be set to periodically scan the contents of a Window for a defined item of text (e.g. Server Alert) that could then be set to make a noise? Or is it a case of learning a language and writing one myself?
It can't be beyond the wit of man can it?
