One Clock is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you make use of a countdown timer and play sound notifications.

The tool runs quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals several dedicated parameters that you can tinker with. The configuration panel is straightforward, so even rookies can learn to master the entire process in no time.

One Clock gives you the possibility to hear the current time being spoken aloud, enable or disable the speech mode, and choose the desired type of voice, namely female or male.

What’s more, you can make the application automatically play a preset sound notification every five, fifteen, or thirty minutes, or one hour. Plus, you can choose between several types of chimes, such as horn, rooster, rain forest, birds, video games, gong, or others, as well as set up the time for the countdown timer.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to configure the dedicated parameters, this tool becomes ideal especially for less experienced users. Tests revealed that One Clock carries out a task pretty quickly and leaves a minimal footprint on system resources.

To sum things up, One Clock proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes packed with only a few features for helping you hear the current time being spoken aloud and set up a countdown timer. On the downside, the tool doesn’t let you upload a user-defined audio file (e.g. MP3, OGG) from your computer, so you are stuck with the preset options.
