Timer Program that works with JAWS


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Just came back from my physical therapist who has assigned me certain exercises. I also need to check my posture every 15 minutes. I could set Outlook reminders, but I would have to dismiss them, and that is a pain.
I'm just looking for something that will ring a little bell or, even better, prompt JAWS to say, "Remember to sit up straight and ..."
I guess I need my 5th grade teacher back.
Seriously, has anyone heard of such a program? One of my associates has a timer type program, but it is totally graphical for some reason, and JAWS won't read anything.
Any help would be appreciated.

Instead of trying to find a timer program that works with JAWS (I'm not aware of any), why not just buy an inexpensive talking countdown timer from a merchant like Future Aids? They have a neat little talking timer/clock for only $13.95 with free shipping:

Hello there;

Not sure about this, but doesn't the accessible and webbie have a clock with
which you can set reminders, every 15 30 etc?
You can have chimes on or off?

I do not know what it is called exactly but we have these little small carry oven timers.
No access but you can memorize where the buttons are and keep on starting it at the time you set it up for.
It beeps like crazy until you go and hit stop. And it is ready to start again if you hit the start button.
Sometimes I use it myself just to keep myself from getting lost in space and losing track of time. Like to set for every 30 minutes or so.

Flat little things about the size of a credit card. They have a belt clip on them. Pretty handy. At kitchen stores I think is where my wife got it.

I've been using Steve's Talking Clock for years.

http://clock.steve-audio.net/

It's versatile, Jaws-friendly, and features all kinds of sounds and voices. And best of all, it will do exactly what you want it to do.

Some time ago someone recommended Talking desktop clock. I think it will do what you want. Only, I don't recall where I found it, hopefully someone else can point you in the right direction.
