Share My Creation Talking Clock

The clock uses Text To Speech to read the time. It is set as a service so it reads time hourly at the background.
Leave the clock running in your office so at least once every hour you get to hear something that makes sense.

Very nice app.

I experimented with different language and prompts. Works !

A good template example for beginners like me, to understand "Service" module.

Would be nice, if it can start when phone is switched ON and runs all the time, without ever getting killed.

Alternately, is it possible to tweak the android's built-in clock app to talk ?


Regards,

Hi KPS,
To start the service at startup: use the #StartAtBoot attribute see: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/questions-about-service.90277/#post-570725
I don't know if we can tweak the Android clock, since all clocks run together you can use "startup manager" from google play and run Android clock at startup and you get the voice from this app.
I'm a beginner too, hopefully we will get more help from the experts.
