    I used one for a while and loved it.

    Another idea someone mentioned on another forum was to use a tape recorder to record your own voice counting down from your usual development time. You could customise it for contracted or expanded development to suit, and you can also customise an extra bit on the end of development times for your stop bath timing and fixing. Rewind to the start and do it all again next time. Makes good sense to me.

    Does it speak the remaining time every minute even if the remaining time is 15 minutes? I've found a talking timer but the description said that the timer announces every minute for last 10 minutes.

    My friend made a CD with sound every 15 seconds. With a decent sound editor, such can be made quite easily. But I usually play music and don't want to have a second CD player in my darkroom. (Actually, I use a DVD player with CD-R's with MP3 files so that I can print 6 hours straight)

    As for me, I have a girlfriend who nags me reliable every 30 seconds. I'm thinking of putting her up on eBay......

    No, it only speaks in the last 10 minutes.

    How much? I might be interested to hear a lady nag you every 30 seconds Mike.

    well I bought one today... her voice would be sexy if it wasn't piped through whatever it uses for a speaker!

    Like many things in life... there's a workaround! If you leave it running after it's reached 00:00:00, it beeps for 1min (very annoying to listen to for a whole minute), keeps counting the 'overtime' and starts anouncing '2 mins over' and so on, so it will effectively be able to time 20mins in 1min 'alarms'. After 10min (EDIT) it next indicates 20mins over.
