I use the growl notification system (on MAC) along with todochiku.el for
simple timer notification out of Emacs. Growl can be set to 'speak' the
notification (not sure about other sounds). 

todochiku also works with (snarl/libnotify) on other OSs.

The command todochiku-message allows you to add a notification to a hook
such as org-timer-done-hook (in your init file)...

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 (defun mj-notify-timer-done ()
  (todochiku-message "Title here" "Further text here"
 (todochiku-icon 'bell)))
 (add-hook 'org-timer-done-hook  'mj-notify-timer-done))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
