SAY THE TIME
reviewed by Ken Herbig
Say the Time is a program that does just that! For those of you
who like nifty little utility programs, here is a good one for your collection.
The setup was very simple, I followed the menus and set the options. The
program can be set to say the time, the date, or the time and the date.
It gives you the option of speaking in a male or female voice. Of course,
I chose the female.
You can choose the intervals at which you would like the program to announce
the time. It even lets you turn the announcements off between certain
hours (so it won't wake you up at night.)
You can also choose the look of the icon from the provided drop-down menu.
There is a reminder screen incorporated into the program. To set it up,
you right click on the Say the Time icon in your system tray. You
choose Reminders, then click on Add Reminder. All you need
to do is fill in the information that is requested. (Label for the reminder,
Time - What to say - When you want it - The message that you want it to
give you). You can even have it launch a program at a specific time.
I find this to be a really useful utility as I lose all track of time
when I am on the computer. It has been keeping me out of trouble (sometimes!)
