Speaking clock in VB.NET

I never realized how easy it is to use SAPI in .NET, I developed a "Speaking clock" with just these three lines of code:

Dim Voice As SpeechLib.SpVoice

Voice =

New SpeechLib.SpVoice

Voice.Speak(DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString(), SpeechLib.SpeechVoiceSpeakFlags.SVSFlagsAsync)


This needs a reference to SAPI 5.1. (Microsoft Speech Object Library)
