Talking Clock: Your Customizable Time and Task Reminder Tool


The Talking Clock extension is an ideal tool for managing time and tasks efficiently in your daily work and life. It’s equipped with features for both time reminders and custom reminders, making it a perfect aid for desktop users like writers, programmers, or remote workers.

Key Highlights:

  1. Time Reminder:
    • Offers periodic voice and/or system notifications of the current time.
    • Customizable intervals: Choose from various timeframes such as every 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 minutes, or hourly up to 3 hours.
    • Do Not Disturb settings: Avoid interruptions during full-screen activities or video playback.
  2. Custom Reminder:
    • Set reminders for daily, weekly, monthly, or annual events.
    • Options include single or multiple reminders per day for tasks like medication or daily meals.
    • Customize for specific dates like birthdays or anniversaries.
  3. Clock Feature:
    • Displays the current time and date when you click the extension icon.
    • Options to show an analog or digital clock, seconds, date, and time on the icon.
  4. Additional Settings:
    • Keyboard shortcuts for quick access to time and reminders.
    • Voice announcements via Text-to-Speech (TTS) and desktop notifications.
    • Customize TTS voice settings according to language and preference.

Note on Reminders:

  • Voice announcements can be heard if the speaker is on with adequate volume.
  • System notifications for time reminders disappear after a few seconds, but for custom reminders, they last up to a minute to ensure you don’t miss them.

TTS Details:

  • Utilizes both OS-provided and browser-based TTS, dependent on network connectivity for browser TTS.
  • Each TTS voice typically supports one language for accurate reading.

Accessing Extension Options:

  • Right-click the extension icon and select Options, or click the settings icon in the extension popup.

Please Note: This extension is not a substitute for an alarm clock and shouldn’t be relied upon for critical reminders like catching a plane, as it won’t function if the browser is closed or the computer is asleep. It’s best suited for regular, daily tasks and reminders.
