Sarah k Alawami

Hello. I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii, anyway my clock synced fine, it shows 8 something however nvda clock add on of which I forget the name right n= bow is showing 10 something, so my local time back home. I looked in the node’s settings and cannot find in there where to show the time according to the windows clock.


Windows 11 22H2 (x64) build 22621.1105


I think my nvda version is in my sig.

Oh, you poor, suffering dear!  [Why on earth are you even looking at the clock?!  Get out there and enjoy that vacation!]
If you're talking the Clock and Calendar Add-On for NVDA, then I presume the first setting in the following, taken from the Community Add-On page for that add-on, would be the place to look:

To configure clock functionality, open NvDA menu, Preferences, then Settings, and configure the following options from Clock panel:

  • Time and date display format: use these combo boxes to configure how NVDA will announce time and date when you press NVDA+F12 once or twice quickly, respectively.
  • Interval: choose the time announcement interval from this combo box (off, every 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or every hour).
  • Time announcement (enabled if interval is not off): choose between speech and sound, sound only, or speech only.
  • Clock chime sound (enabled if interval is not off): select the clock chime sound.
  • Quiet hours (enabled if interval is not off): select this checkbox to configure quiet hours range when automatic time announcement should not occur.
  • Quiet hours time format (enabled if quiet hours is enabled): select how quiet hours options are presented (12-hour or 24-hour format).
  • Quiet hours start and end times: select hour and minute range for quiet hours from hours and minutes combo boxes.

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
