Capturing text under mouse cursor using MSAA.


  • Looking for source code or library to read the screen text of an object under the mouse cursor in any application (E.g. such as when the user is viewing a PDF/Website/MS Office etc).

    I would like to build an application that runs in the system tray, that allows the user to mouse over text, parse it and play it back or just pass it on to another custom application that I make. In a way it is like a screenreader.

    The target platform is Windows 7 or later.

    I would prefer to use it from C# or Java.
