Publisher description for countDownTimer
Countdown is a simple standalone Countdown Timer that provides visual and auditory cues regarding the timer's status. Timers are often used in classrooms to limit activities, to aid students with transitioning from one activity to another, or for timing activities like cooking. Countdown was designed to work along with Launcher6, and responds to keyboard commands the same way as Launcher6 as noted below. Like Launcher6 any changes to Countdown's setup are saved automatically in a text file called "countdown.tsu"in the same folder as the Countdown.exe file, and the setup is automatically loaded when Countdown is opened again. You can set the following features of Countdown : Set Minutes: Choose from the drop down menu. Set Seconds: Choose from the drop down menu. Automatically Start Countdown: Start counting down upon opening. Audio Count Down the Last 10 Seconds: Auditory countdown of 10, 9 , 8... Announce Last 4 30 Second Intervals: Auditory cues for 2 minutes, 1 minute 30 seconds... Use Endpoint Audio Announcement: A sound or TTS message to play at timer end. Use Clipboard Text-to-Speech: Use a clipboard TTS agent to produce auditory cues instead of sound files. Exit When Timer Expires: Close Countdown at the end of timer. Locate end message sound file: Find the sound file you want for your end message. Enter text for final message: Enter your TTS end message as text. Load Text-to-Speech Program: Locate your TTS program if necessary. Start Countdown: Return to the Countdown screen and commence counting down.
