Nice toy. Still can occasionally be tripped up. Consisently will announce the previous hour immediately upon coming out of standby. Once repeated both previous and correct hour announcement back to back after I had just checked the time. Announced 0 minutes before next chime and a few seconds later the double announcement.

Hi. I think that the hourly chime version is a great script, however, I have noticed a couple of glitches. I noticed that the hourly chime when set to chime the hour chimed 13 times at one o'clock. I had to use insert-t to make certain my computer's time was set correctly. It is. I have also noticed that the time when set to a male or female voice would announce the time as follows: At midnight the time is announced "the time is a.m. without the word twelve. I have also heard the time announced with both voices like this. The time is 9:00 am. 8:00 a.m. Has anyone else noticed these glitches? i don't want to uninstall the script as I like it very much. Thank you. Michael Massey

Yes, remove the "chime will be" from insert t, and lower the volume levels on the default chime, far louder than the others and overrides my WE speaking at full volume.

I would like to have the option of eliminating the announcement stating when the next chime will be, when I use insert T, to check the current time.
