  by Bruce Babcock This app is rated 4 out of 5 stars with 3 ratings. XML Feed for Cuckoo_Clock 3.3

This Cuckoo Clock app is designed to sound like the old style Cuckoo Clock on the wall at your grand bparents. It also has the ability to record your voice up to 1 minute and save it as a .wav file. Or convert text to speech and save it as a .wav file. You can set it to have a Big Ben chime at the Top Of The Hour, or sound every half or quarter hour using the Cuckoo clock sound. You activate the settings menu using the hotkey combo Control-Insert-E keys. In this menu you have settings in the Clocks menu which turn on or off options such as the sleep and alarm modes, or set the chime to be once, twice, or four times an hour. Also in the Clocks menu you can turn on or off the Rooster Wakeup or Noon Whistle sounds. Along with the option to give the time settings when using the Date-Time hotkey. when the wakeup or alarm is triggered you can also set the voice of the time to either male or female in the Clocks menu. There is also an edit menu to allow you to change the sleep, wakeup and alarm times. Also the sounds which are played when that alert comes. Other sounds are edited which are used at the top of the hour or during the hour. You can choose either 12 or 24 hour format and even record your own sound files. Recording sound files is done in the sound edit dialog box which comes up when editing any of the sound files. The other important menu is the Announce menu that allows you to select what is announced at the Top, Half and Quarter hours. You can use chime only, chime to count the hours or use a male or female voice to tell you the time. This version also allows you to make wav files from text using installed Sapi voices. That text can be gotten from a text file you search an select or can come from just copying text to your clipboard then pressing the save text from the file or clipboard button. You are allowed to test what the text is going to sound like before saving. so it gives you the opportunity to make changes to the voice before making the wav file. you also have many different format choices to be able to make your wav file in, such as mono, stereo, and sample rates. so install and enjoy the sounds.

4/30/2013 8:45:12 PMVersion 3.2 Modified to allow a user to block a time announcement after the computer wakes up from screen savor or opening the lid of your lap top, unless it is exactly on the quarter hour you set. This feature is called Announce after wakeup from hibernate/screen savor and is in the clocks menu. It will announce if on and will not if off. You have the choice because some people want to know the time after wakeup and will if this menu item is checked/on. Version 3.3 Included all hourly settings. I also changed the help menu email so you can send an email to anyone once your email client installs after clicking on it. Future modification will allow you to make a list of people you would like to email to.

9/30/2011 9:32:54 PMThe 3.0 version of cuckoo Clock added the ability to make text to speech .wav files. Version 3.1 was needed to correct an error in making and filling the record folder to get rid of an annoying error message when the app was first loaded. It was not a fatal error but very annoying because of a need to answer the prompt message.

9/29/2011 10:24:53 PMThis version of the Cuckoo clock program allows you to select and even make your own wav files. I made the change to 3.0 to cover the addition of making wav files from text. That text can come from either a file or text that was copied to the clipboard. You can select a voice from a list, change the speech rate, the pitch, and even the sample rate of the wav file made.

Version 2.2

6/28/2011 9:56:04 PMVersion 2.2 has change the need to contact the author for the record feature to automatic installation when the app is first installed. A folder is created under the Cuckoo name that has all the record programs and a play file program. All which can be run outside of the Cuckoo clock app if you need to. If no file name isentered when doing this a message box comes up to tell you the format you can use. Version 2.1 added the Send An Email option in the Options Help Menu to allow a request for the record feature or contacting the app author. The Cuckoo clock 2.0 version has added the option to select male or female voice to tell the time when the Wakeup or alarm sound is triggered. This replaces the piping into the Date-Time hotkey function to give you the time. Also added is the option to record files. But this feature can only be installed by requesting for the folder that has the record program in it. Without that folder the record feature when the record button is pressed will only announce in a message box to contact the author for a copy of the folder. Time Setting Fix: It was discovered that when attempting to set the time between 12 midnight and 1: 59 A. M. it would default instead to the P.M. setting after saving and exiting the time edit dialog. That error is now fixed.
