A continuing challenge: When my clock's chimes fooled me

This is something that is becoming more and more of a challenge for me. When I am unable to see the face of my clock, it is next to impossible to know whether or not the chimes are matching the time. 

For example, if my clock chimes 5 times then how can I tell that it is indeed 5 pm?  This is all due to the era of the digital clock and the inability to remove the cover of the clock and then feel the face.

There used to be a time when I could do so, with the older clocks.  I could remove the cover and voila!  I could feel the dots and the hands but I cannot do that now with those digital clocks. 

So I need to depend on sighted assistance to tell me if chimes and time are in sync.  Just another challenge for me to deal with.
