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.

Developer's Description

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.
