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.
