But Dutch is also available (as well as many other languages), supposing the proper Windows language pack is installed on the computer. See this and the Name option on the above link.

Didn't mean it literally, you have to install the Speech plugin from the posted link.

I said Speech (not speech), because this is the name of the plugin.

Can someone give me a push on the right direction to do it? I'm not asking for code, just the tools to do it!! I love breaking my head on walls to reach my goals :D I have a little knowledge of js, php and mysql but nothing to deep.

Thank you so much to everyone!!
Not trying to necropost here, but you don't necessarily have to use Lua or Rainmeter to do this. If Python, PHP, CMD or PowerShell can do the first part (i.e. "talking" and "writing" stuff to where you store that counter and all that), then they can definitely be triggered by a RunCommand measure in Rainmeter (not sure about triggering the PHP scripts though), and Lua or Rainmeter can definitely read what has been written.
