Speaking clock Information

"Good morning At the tone, the time will be 9:52 and ten seconds tone"
Before the Bell System divestiture, the caller would first hear a brief promotional or informative phrase, and then a brief weather forecast
For example: "A long-distance call is a smiling, happy way to visit Ohio Bell time (n)..."
"Give people a chance to answer; let the phone ring ten times..."
"A long-distance call is the next best thing to being there..."
The samples were often read by Jane Barbe, John Doyle, Pat Fleet or Joanne Daniels.
Many shortwave radio time signal services provide speaking clock services, such as WWV (voiced by John Doyle) and WWVH (voiced by Jane Barbe), operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology from the United States of America
To avoid disruption with devices who rely on the accurate timings and placement of the service tones from the radio, the voice recording may be "notched" clear of some of the tones.
The time as provided by WWV is also available by telephone, by calling +1 303 499 7111
WWVH (an auxiliary location in Hawaii) is available at +1 808 335 4363.

at +1 202 762 1401 or +1 202 762 1069, and in Colorado Springs, Colorado at +1 719 567 6742.
