Bull Horn Alarm Clock,
This review is from: MedCenter Your Minder Interactive 6 Personalized 10 sec Reminder Clock with AC Adapter (Health and Beauty)
I purchased the "Your Minder Personal Alarm Clock" because you can record up to 6 of your own alarm messages. I thought this would be great for my aging mother that needed reminders to take medications. The voice recording works well, but there is no way to eliminate the other messaging that comes out at 4 times the volume of your recorded message which is very irritating. There is no volume control. I put tape over the speakers to reduce the volume but then my recorded voice could not be heard. The pre-recorded messages are so loud you can hear the clock casing rattle. It is not possible to softly wake up with this siren of a voice going off.

You say that the 'extra' alarms can't be turned off? Instructions say they can during set up - are the instructions faulty here??

I have recorded all of my own personal message recordings and there is no other message that comes out in conflict with it. We canceled whatever was prerecorded and changed the times to convenient times for us. I love it and have recommended it to hundreds of people in my time management workshops across the country.

They can be turned off. We've had ours for 5years. It is very loud, but it's an alarm! We need a loud one.

I think Mark is referring to the very loud "alarm acknowledged" messages that sound whenever you turn off an alarm. When you acknowledge an alarm, it goes on to say something like, "Alarm acknowledged. The next alarm will be the evening alarm at 7:00 PM. The current time is 2:00 PM." It's annoying this can't be turned off. It's louder than my recorded messages, and it confuses my mother.
