Re: Clock Addon

Luke Davis

First, some questions:

Are you using the stable version or the development version of the Clock and Calendar add-on?

Have you tried contacting the developers of the add-on? they are still active, and the add-on was last updated in May.

To test, I installed the stable add-on in latest NVDA beta.
I set to 10 minute voice and sounds announcements, and started testing at 8:58 PM (20:58).
I set to the 24 hour quiet hours, and entered:
Start: 21:11
End: 21:38

At 21:00 and 21:10, I got the normal announcement I was expecting.
At 21:20, nothing happened.
At 21:22, I quit then restarted NVDA.
At 21:30, nothing happened.
At 21:40, I got the normal announcement I was expecting.

Since everything seemed to be working well, I now made the following changes:
I turned off 24 hour quiet hours mode.
I set the interval to 15 minutes.
I set the quiet start time to: 8:00 PM.
I set the quiet end time to 10:05 pm. Note the lower case--I just thought I'd try that, and also tried 8:00 instead of 08:00.

At 9:45 PM and 10:00 PM, nothing happened.
At 10:15 PM, I got the normal announcement I was expecting.

Therefore, I very much do not confirm your bug. If you repeat my steps (with adjusted times, of course), what happens?

The following appears on the add-on's page (accessible from the add-ons manager):

To avoid bugs, the quiet hours must follow a rigorous and precise syntax;

If you check the "Input in 24-hour format" checkbox, the format must be "HH:MM";
If you uncheck the "Input in 24-hour format" checkbox, the format must be "HH:MM AM" or "HH:MM PM", the HH must contain a 12-hour format, from 0 to 12 and th$
If you check the Quiet hours" checkbox and keep the "Quiet hours start time" or "Quiet hours end time" field empty, or type a mistaken value, the "Quiet hour$
A message should be displayed to report your error.

Using latest NVDA and clock settings addon.Having some issues with the clock addon.

The problem is with the quiet hours setting.

Have tried both 12-hour and 24-hour settings.

My settings were to have chhime stop at 9:30 pm and begin again at 6:00 am.

In toth instances the addon was correctly set. However the time announcement continued throughout the night.

Any ideas?
