    Annoying Voice reminding me about the time hourly

    Hi guys.
    I feel really stupid, but I recently installed Windows 8.
    For some reason there is a female voice reminding me every hour what the time is.
    For example at 10:00
    I hear a female voice saying "the time is.....10 am"
    Iv'e been scouring my cntrol panel trying to find out where I can disable this.
    Any help will be appreciated.
    \Thanks in advance
