This software alarm clock earns big points for its extensive features and flexibility. Talking Time Keeper lets you schedule alarms, set timers, and check world times. It comes with seven voices, one male, five female, and a Morgan Freeman sound-alike. You can download more from the developer's site.
There are options to create your own voices and program skins, but the extensive alarm features are the real strength here. For example, you can set picture alarms with MP3 audio and schedule programs to launch at a certain time. There's even an interactive global day-and-night map with accurate sunrise and sunset times. The main-menu interface is compact and intuitive, and it supports skins for greater customization. A simple screensaver displays the current time and the world map.
A 24-hour clock is supported, too. We didn't like that we couldn't preview voices from within the preferences window, and that there was no support for importing appointments from other calendars. Mouse-over tooltips would've gone a long way towards identifying the function of various arrows and buttons. Nevertheless, we think Talking Time Keeper is a reasonable download for those who want a time manager with a human touch.
From Mark Judge:
Talking Time Keeper is a fully featured desktop time package. Its features include the ability to announce the time using real voices, including celebrity sound-alike voices (either at the click of a button or at specified intervals, or using Command Line parameters), plus chimes (including Grandfather Clock mode), alarms and timers, which display messages and pictures, run programs, shutdown your PC, speak, and play sounds and MP3s, all with a snooze option. The application includes a calendar displaying upcoming alarms; more than 250 world-time locations (editable); a day-and-night world map; the phases of the moon; stopwatches with lap timers; and atomic time synchronization. The program also includes a voice-building tool (all you need is a microphone), and a skin building tool. You can decide exactly what is heard or displayed, and even add a personal touch by displaying a photo. Also included are screen saver and world day and night wallpaper options.
TTK is a heart or diabetic patent's best friend. it is very easy to navigate. it's self explanatory. being able to set multiple alarms through out the day is an advantage others don't offer. this program will make managing your diabetes simpler, all diabetics need that. you name each alarm for example, medication or insulin injections. so if you want total control over diabetes by never missing a dose again..this program is for you.
ps. the staff is very courteous and quick to reply
Great customer service 1) Choose 2 have the alarms, timers, & the clock talk, play a sound or both 2) Turn off all alarms, timers & sounds 3) Option 2 have the clock go off at different intervals 4) Set multiple alarms & timers 4) Stopwatch feature
The software will not wake the computer from sleep mode which means it will not work if the computer is in sleep mode. I even changed the power options in my computer to enable to allow wake timers when the computer is sleeping but it did not work
I love the program and plan on purchasing it. Overall the best program for alarms out there that I have tried. I do plan on looking for other programs that will wake the computer when it's sleeping but It's a definite program to try out and keep
I like that the Note's are big and colorful Easy to learn how to use the and easy to read them.
no con that I has see.
I have try many of this sticky note and I like this one becuase it is in 3D and it is easier to see them Not like some that I have used that they are hard to read them because you can only use one size font and this one you can use a number of font's but no matter what size of font you use you can still read them.
I enjoy the view of the world as the sun continually sets across the globe. As a freelance writer, I've been getting jobs from all over--Malaysia, Australia, and now in India. The Talking Timekeeper can keep track of everything in all my time zones with alarms--and you have such an interesting selection of sounds. Luv it!
Took a bit more memory than I anticipated. No problem--just made some adjustments.
