Say the Time provides a simple tool for managing time and staying on task. Its signature voice alarm system was fun to use, but ultimately it's not much better than other alarm programs out there.

The program's interface was simple to understand and operate, since it broke all actions down into the easiest process and left no room for error. Things were so smooth we were able to set up reminders in a matter of seconds. The program basically functioned like many alarm systems we'd tested where we entered a date and time for an alarm via a calendaring system reminiscent of Microsoft Outlook. We were able to write a reminder and choose whether we wanted a male or female voice to remind us. The alarm was simply the voice reading the time while our message window popped up on the screen. Say the Time also comes with several little features that only enhance things slightly, such as the ability to alter the way the voice delivers the time and tinker with the layout. While everything worked according to plan, we didn't find the voice reminders to be more helpful than other sound-based alarms. However, say the Time's clear vocalizations and accurate time readings could be a great help to the visually impaired.

Say the Time has a 30-day trial period. While it doesn't offer much more or do anything much better than other schedulers and alarms, we still enjoyed this program enough to recommend it.
