README.TXT - YAKKITY CLOCK
Shareware Version 1.01S - 7/20/92 interim release
Yakkity Clock is a fun, easy-to-use "talking clock" utility for
the Microsoft Windows operating environment.
Yakkity Clock literally "tells" you the time at the press of a
button -- or at easily configured intervals from once every hour
to once every minute. A number of built-in sound effects can be
substituted for the "interval" voice time -- you can even set up
Yakkity Clock to bark like a dog!
Yakkity Clock is an alarm clock, too! Up to four independent
alarms can be set and enabled quickly and easily. Plus, the
alarm feature can be configured to play either of the two
standard sounds OR any stand-alone .WAV sound file located in
the Yakkity Clock directory!
