Talking Clock is a lightweight time management utility that helps you view the time and date displayed on your screen, hear the date and time spoken, as well as set up alarms.
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you to need to set up alarms on the fly, without having to go through installation steps.
It boasts a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to configure the dedicated parameters with minimum effort.
Talking Clock gives you the possibility to make the utility speak the time or date with just one click, and add a new alarm by selecting the time, specifying the name, and uploading an audio file from the computer (WAV file format).
Additionally, you can create multiple alarms, repeat them daily, remove the sound for the selected alarm, specify how many times the tool says the time, as well as enable or disable an alarm.
Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to view a log with details about the entire process and possible errors, sort the information included in the log by time or type, and delete the selected item.
When it comes to audio configuration settings, you can make the tool say the time and date at a user-defined value, and add a new voice.
What’s more, you are allowed to customize the layout of the program by configuring the opacity level, selecting the color and font for the time, date, and week, as well as uploading an image from your computer (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, TGA, BMP).
Last but not least, you can perform command-line operations, make the utility run at Windows startup, keep the clock on top of other applications, set up the time parameters, use hotkeys for a better control over the entire process, which can be reassigned, perform remote operations, and send email notifications.
