    I am trying to make a tasker script which can read the details from a Truecaller display when a call comes in and log the caller's name along with call derails in a sheet on Google Drive.
    However I am unable to find a plugin which can read from the Truecaller display.
    Can anyone suggest such a plugin?

    Have you tried AutoInput yet?

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes I tried the trial version of AutoInput "Manage input actions" but AutoInput would not detect the overlay from Truecaller on the incoming call screen.

    I've found a work-around for this by using the OCR function of AutoTools.
    - do screenshot of incoming call screen (with the Trucaller's overlay) using Run Shell command and have resulting png file saved in specific location
    - Autotool's OCR then reads the screenshot png file from that location
    - do variable split on %atocrvalue and extract Truecaller's caller info into a variable
    - speak out the caller info variable during ring
    - delete the screenshot file

    I have some problems in splitting the %atocrvalue variable, meaning that I tried to separate it by "," but no value is returned. Can you explain to me, please, how did you do it?

    It's an array, so you have to access a position on it :) Try using %atocrvalue(1) for example.
