Editors' review

Multilingual Speaking Clock offers users an opportunity to hear the time in practically any language. This simple-to-operate program will not disappoint users looking for a basic timepiece in their native tongue.

This freeware download could not be more straightforward. It is seen as a simple digital clock with black numbers on a gray background that winds up every second of the day. Users find five buttons at the bottom of the clock for Alarm, Settings, Options, Help, and Spoken Time. The clock comes with four options of voices: American English spoken by a male, American English spoken by a female, French spoken by a male, and German by a female. Each is clear and distinct and accurately tells the time. Dozens of other languages are available for quick download on the company's Web site.

In addition, the alarm setting is simple, easy-to-set and accurate. The Settings and Options buttons provide users with opportunities to customize the look and function of the clock right down to the voice's volume.

Multilingual Speaking Clock is a fantastic download for anyone seeking out a vocal way to tell time. With easy-to-use controls, crisp speaking voices, and a fine clock face, this is a top choice for anyone looking for a speaking clock.

    "Great Product!!!"

    July 09, 2012   |   By Ron Geiken

    Version: Multilingual Speaking Clock 2.6

    Pros

    The enunciation of the voices is very clear and you can set it to provide the intervals that you want. I set it to run ever 10 minutes. I had another clock with voice, but it was not very clear. This one is just what the doctor ordered. It keeps you aware of what time it is when you drift off and forget. Also a little symbol appears down in the notification area and you can call that up to make any adjustment or even have it speak to tell you what time it is currently. Download this, you will certainly enjoy having it and using it.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet. This is a well designed product.

    Summary

    I am glad that I found this product on my Google search. The thing that sold me is the clarity of the voices both man and woman. I like to hear what time it is since I often get diverted while on the computer, and can't remember what time it is. Thankfully this was easily available and works as good as I could want. Thanks again CNET for having this good software available. I get a lot of software from CNET and most of it is very worth while.

    "I just love this little widget!"

    September 18, 2009   |   By Cberlav

    Version: Multilingual Speaking Clock 2.6

    Pros

    I enjoy hearing the time announce while I am working and the alarm features are very configurable.

    Cons

    So far it has behaved well so I have no comment about anything being wrong with it.

    Summary

    This is a fun widget to have. I have another that shows time under the cursor so now I'm well set for time keepers. Thanks again.

    "Nifty but would like more"

    July 02, 2009   |   By gregorybrian

    Version: Multilingual Speaking Clock 2.6

    Pros

    Fun. Nifty. Very helpful when I want to keep track of my time when working on a project. I set it for every 15 minutes, which may be a bit excessive. But that's what I like about it: versatility.

    Cons

    Would like the option of a visual time announcement when I'm recording something. Nothing more annoying than nearing the end of a recording and hearing "The time is now 12:15 pm" mixed into the recording! Also, need more voice options/languages.

    Summary

    It's free so I can't complain too much.

    "Cute 'lil bug.. I used it every day."

    April 07, 2009   |   By OldeFart

    Version: Multilingual Speaking Clock 2.6

    Pros

    Free utility that talks in many languages.. check the updated version, it now has Spanish, both European and South American (male voices) and Norwegian (young female voice) as well as thirty other voices from Afrikaans to Turkish...

    Cons

    The voices are a bit metallic.. As far as the sys tray clock goes, all you have to do is click on properties (on the opened task bar) click on the notification area of taskbar/start menu prop. (windows vista) and uncheck the clock under system icons.

    Summary

    Let me tell you, the freebie is fine but for those who love to pittle, the deluxe is the way to go.. This one is very affordable and it can actually talk to you (via the speech synthesis options in languages and modes of the announce section) and has too many optional goodies to describe (such as the text-to-speech agent selector).. I am totally sold on this little product and this free 2.6 clock is just the beginning.. After downloading this program and starting it for the first time, click on the web site (found in about/register or help) for some more freebies (language downloads, upgrade, versa timer, etc.).. Have fun..

    Updated on May 3, 2009

    Still having fun with this 'lil toy.. Can now create conversations via languages/modes.. The soon to be released 3.62 will include mp3 and wma.
    many changes since 11/25/2008.
