Online Audible Alert Timer/Clock Display

This calculator requires the use ofJavascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to be a fully functional sound executing (using YOUR sound file located on YOUR computer) timer alert that you can set to notify (alert) you in the chosen number of minutes, up to 99999, (That is 1666.65 hours, or about 70 days for all of you time buffs! (See the alternative to this standard Online Audible Alert Timer/Clock Display With Seconds if you would like a full hours, minutes and seconds display.) See our Time Converter for conversions to and from any time designation.) based on YOUR local time. It is extremely simple, so if you are not a "techie", don't be "alerted" at the instructions. One click to set the alert to ON; enter the number of minutes to elapse and then select the sound you want. That is all you are required to do. As long as you leave the computer on, select alert ON (the default is OFF), enter the time in minutes to elapse, you don't even need an Internet connection at alert time. Select the sound that you want by clicking on Browse to select local music (any local music or sound that works on your system). Typically that music is played by the Windows Media Player on Windows systems but it is really based on the associated file sounds player on your system. If no alarm sound file is chosen, the online system default sound will activate the alarm (which will activate you...)! The default alert sound DOES require an Internet connection. The clock window MUST BE OPEN for the alert to work (however, it does NOT need to be the active window)! You can turn the monitor off if the light bothers you. Be sure to test this so that you have your computer sound system volume set adequately for your own needs. This has been tested on IE versions 5.5 and up (see special note below). See our Online Multiple Audible Alert Timer/Clock Display (if you need more than one alert function), our Online Alarm Clock Display, or the less technically intense version, Online Simple Alarm Clock Display, when you have time! If you want to just hear the chosen alert sound now and don't want to wait for any time to elapse (typical type"A" personality...), click the On Now option. If you want silence but want to keep the alert sound selection, click on Alert Off. Just reset the time to turn the Alert On function back on with the same sound. When the alert is activated, the On Now button will also illuminate. You may restart the alert sound from the beginning by clicking the On Now button as many times as you wish. Clear Values resets all of the options to the starting default values. If you select music on YOUR system, this does not create a load on bandwidth since both your browser and the music are local.


This application only works in IE5.5 and higher browsers. In higher browsers such as 7+ and 8, the security settings by default are designated at Medium High in the Internet zone. This will NOT work at that level. You MUST either configure your security simply at Medium or go through the 40 or so options to configure it as a Custom security level. (The security issue is that YOU are selecting a tune or sound on YOUR computer to execute at a given time.) We have been told that other modern browsers do work with this application with several "add in options". I have not been able to make that happen and I suggest that if you want to use it, use IE...
