This is the clock that tells time with written words rather than numbers, simulating human speech. The digitless clock displays the time in 22-point letters using utterly correct but constantly varying timekeeping parlance4:21 p.m. may be shown as "Twenty-one minutes past four p.m.", while 11:45 p.m. may be stated as "Quarter To Midnight". The 5" W x 1 1/4" H LCD panel is set behind dark tinted glass to eliminate glare. The clock can also display time in Spanish, French, German, or Russian, providing a practical way to learn a new language. Additional languages can be downloaded from the manufacturer┐s web site and transferred to the clock via USB. An included CR2032 backup battery ensures continued functionality in case of power failures. Plugs into AC. 2 3/4" H x 8" W x 1 5/8" D. (2 1/2 lbs.)
