Countdown Timer1 Countdown Timer2

Version 1910         Updated 16 Oct 2019               Approx 1.5 MB

This countdown timer is similar to those found on all smartphones.

It can be used to display remaining time (min/sec) during timed events.
A choice of alarm sounds are available to (optionally) indicate when the countdown has completed

This was originally designed for use on a data projector in school classrooms for timing student tasks.

For that reason, the countdown display is deliberately large and 'in your face'

The attached zip file contains the database & code together with about 20 copyright-free sound files.

An Access runtime (ACCDR) version is also available for those who do not need to view the code used.
