Does anyone know of any software which will search a CD, while it is playing, for a particular word and stop the cd in place when it finds the word?  In orther words it is like an F2 find and search function in a word processor. Is there any such program or software to search a CD for mention of a specific word or phrase?

 

If anyone is knowledgable about such software, I would appreciate a response.  Thank you,.  44Guy

I'm not aware of a way to do it on Windows.

 

It can be done on Linux, but it is above a novice user level application.

I've tried googling the topic and all you get are search engines for words in documents.  I'm convinced there must be software out there for doing this, but so far I haven't been able to locate it.  I don't think Windows has anything in it either that will do this. 

 

But, somewhere, somehow perhaps if I keep searching I will find it.  It really can't be that difficult, but I am not a programming expert- i HAVE TO FIND ONE!

Send them to me.  Real "experts" are difficult to findl   Thanks for taking the time to reply. This may be way beyond the domain  of the

Let me Google, "Let me Google that for you."

 

Go to their site, enter your search terms, click the "Type a question, click a button" button, get the link to paste that does a "Let me Google that for you" for the search terms you entered.
