How to Make Your Computer Talk




This is something else that I think is pretty cool. It is a program that whenever you type in something it says it back to you. It sounds really cool/funny:-) By the way, I am trying something new here. I am putting everything in one picture. Please leave a comment saying if you prefer it like this or if you prefer going through it step by step with individual photos.

Step 1: This Is It

This is all the coding that you need. The "enter text" part is what you saw on the first picture and this is what it shows on the program face (if you don't know what I'm talking about, look back at the first picture). You can change this to input, text or anything actually. The "Talk" part is the name of the program. It is what will appear in the top bar of he program. Again you can change this to anything you like.

Step 2: Welcome

This almost the same thing, but with this program you can't enter the text that you want it to say. Now you're probably going: oh, that's boring. But the cool thing is if you place this file in the folder C:\Users\{user-name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup than it plays every time that you start-up your computer. So every time that you start your computer it will say welcome. Isn't that cool:-)

Step 3: Saving

This is rather important. When you save these files you have to make sure that you save them as a .vbs (for example: Talk.vbs) Thank you for reading this tutorial. Feel free to leave a comment and don't forget to vote. Thank you!

    You fail to menrion what the heck you are using to code with? What program are you typing this into? I don't get it.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried it. I had no idea you could do that sort of thing so easily. I always thought it took some sort of software development "environment". Obviously not.
