Wait for sound from specific application

21 Jan 2018, 07:49

Is there a way to use any sound from a specific application as a trigger in an AutoHotKey script? It doesn't have to be a specific sound, but just any sound that originates from the application I specified.

Specifically, I just need to trigger a window box alert, every time the application I specified makes any sound.

Any help will be appreciated!

Why you're going for the sound instead of the (visual) message box alert itself??

Sorry if I'm not being clear enough, I will clarify my goals a bit more
I want to make an AutoHotKey script that can make a window box alert, every time a single specific application (specified within the script) makes any sound whatsoever.

To make my purpose clearer:
I wanted to do this because there's a really good Pomodoro app I have, that have specific functions that I can't live without (that no other pomodoro app afaik have). The problem is that every time it finishes the timer, it only can alert you with sound. I sometimes just can't work without sound at all, not even headphones, so I would need a decently attention-grabbing visual cue that the timer is over. I often miss the end of the timer, especially when I'm really focused on my work, defeating the purpose of using Pomodoro in the first place

So, any help is appreciated!

It's https://pomodoneapp.com/
To note, I'm using it in the mini-timer mode, so that it can hover above the application I'm working on without being too distracting and obscuring

One of the features that I really need from this app is that it displays both the goal list and the remaining time, while in the mini-timer mode. Afaik, no other Pomodoro application have this
