At  this link is an applet that displays a large clock. Although I have fairly good eyesight, I often find this useful when I have to do something in the near future, as the audio announcements feature means I can keep check of the time when I can't see the clock.


This software is licensed under the GPL, so feel free to alter it to your needs. The source, as a NetBeans project, is HERE. It would be nice to know what you've done with it if you do make any changes.

Features include:

  • Audible announcements at 1, 5 or 10 minute intervals
  • Various colour schemes for easier visibility
  • User choice of time zone
  • Day and date display
  • 12 hour and 24 clock displays and announcments
