How to make your Mac announce the time

July 15, 2011 in Mac OS X

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy to lose track of time while reading news on the web, getting distracted reading email, Facebook, or just surfing from one website to another. Don’t let your waking hours get away from you (unless of course you are reading Mac Help For Mom). Watch this video to see how to turn your Mac into a speaking clock that will periodically announce the time.

Besides setting your Mac to announce the time every hour, every half hour, or every quarter hour, you can also use a different voice, speech rate, and volume than you have set for other speech features like having your Mac speak to get your attention.
