IOS 15 and the talking clock apps?

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

hey! I used to use voiceover clock and it doesn't work after IOS 15.
any good and accessible apps can have the talking clock features?
it is something like announcing the time in every 30 minutes and so on...

I use an app called Chime which has a similar purpose. I had it set to announce the time every 15 minutes; most people may think that's overkill, but it really, really helped me with time management and keeping track of time, especially at work. It's been a bit flakey for a couple of years now, but it died completely when I updated to iOS 15. I hope that eventually, there will be a way to get apps like this to work again. The app is tiny, so I'm keeping it around just in case it ever magically decides to start working again, but I didn't realize how dependent I truly was on Chime to keep me on track until I've had to do without it for the past few days.

maybe we can review in the apps store and ask the developers to update the apps.

I was dependent on this app for an hourly chime. Sadly, this is not working too.

If it’s the same Voice clock from the Japanese developper, it’s working beautifully on an SE2020 with iOS15! Are you sure you turned on NOtifications from within the ap? Also in terms of apps that don’twork with iOS15, “Talkin Clock2” which I prefer over Voice Clock because apart from teling you the time via voice, it alerts you to this. I’ve written to the evelopper of “Talkin Clock2”, awaiting his EMail letting me know that the app is ready to update.

If the one that works under iOS 15 can announce every 15 minutes, I'll happily check it out, but if it can't do that, then, unfortunately, it really wouldn't help me all that much.

I'm a Chime user too, and I had no idea how much I relied on it until now. I would switch if something else replaces those 15 minute updates, the great voice, and the ease of setting a time range.
