I'm not aware of any talking clock. However, you may be able
to merge a text-to-speech program with a clock utility. Some
TTS programs are (non-commercial; Festival) (non-commercial; KTTS) (non-commercial; Flite) (non-commercial; FreeTTS) (non-commercial;

The flitz page even mentioned talking clock, i.e.,
"along with a sample limited domain talking clock.".

Don't know if you're still interested but,

is a really simple implementation, which works okay.
