Clock learning program to display any time on a digital or a right hand or a left hand analogue clock, with or without 12 and 24 hour numbers or 12 hour Roman numerals, tick marks and minutes. The clock can also be spoken and saved to a bitmap or image file to be used in worksheet. There’s also a Countdown Timer and Stopwatch too!
Clock is fully customisable, with any element of clock face colours being changed, and different elements can be shown or hidden.
It can display any time on the clock, and then the time can be advanced 1 minute, 15 minutes, 30 minutes or an hour, it can also send the clock back in time. Random times can be shown too, and the “level” of clock reading can be set, for example, only o’clock times, or only half past times. You can randomise them at that level, or up to that level to mix it up a bit.
The time can be spoken in a reasonably natural way, i.e. It’s half past 9, or quarter to 3, which helps learn to tell the time better.
There’s also a Stopwatch, which can also be spoken whilst it is running, and split times can be recorded, and later spoken back when it has stopped.
Not to mention there’s a Countdown Timer too, which can optionally count down from 10, and when time is up can say text of your choosing or you can specify a sound file to play. Again the time can be spoken whilst it is counting down.
Once a clock is customised to your liking, you can save the clock to an image file. You can also run through every time on the clock and output them all! This is very useful if you are creating worksheets and want pictures of clocks at different times.
The Clock is also a VB6 UserControl, it’s currently still being fully implemented, but it allows you to add the Clock Control into your own VB6 or Visual Basic for Applications Macros, i.e. in a PowerPoint Presentation for example.
