Hello! I am looking for a program that automatically presses a key on the keyboard when predetermined text appears on the screen/in the web browser.
This change always happens at the same spot on the same part of the screen, so i suppose the program could look for changes/colour- changes instead of predetermined text.
The program would have to run in the background, which means that it can't be in front of other programs.


Any help would be much appreciated!

TL;DR: I'm looking for a program that automatically presses a key when changes occur on the screen. Any ideas?

I suppose this is the correct board for such a question.

Thanks for the reply! :) I'm constantly refreshing a page, and every time i refresh, i'm checking if anything has changed. If something has changed, i press a button that runs a macro.

Yes, a webpage. Either prespecified text or any change in a specified area, or in general.

Thanks for the suggestion! :)
Sadly this method is not fast enough, the macro has run in a split- second after the change on the page occurs.

No, i am actually not trying to fool any site :) This would primarily be used for browsing the web.

Yeah, i suppose that is my best bet! :) It's time for some research.
