Another countdown timer (with sounds)

Here's another countdown timer similar to that found on all smartphones these days.

It allows users to set the time interval (mins / seconds) and optionally plays a selected sound (wav) file when time's up.

It was designed for use on a data projector in school classrooms.
For that reason, the countdown display is deliberately large and 'in your face'

Attached is a zip file containing the database & code together with about 20 copyright-free sound files

A runtime version (accdr) is also available from my website
This is supplied as an exe install file & intended for use in schools etc

If you are interested, there are 2 other free resources available from the same place
1. Student ICT Database - for storing student user names, email address & passwords
2. EMail Tester - use to test email settings from Access

Hope these are of use to some of you
