Speech Timer FAQ

Won’t the timer stop when I receive a phone call? Your speech will still be timed even when a phone call comes in or you start another application. Speech Timer records the time when the speech was started and just subtracts the current time from this to time your speech.  So your speech will still be timed even when you switched applications or answer phone calls and timing will continue the next time you start Speech Timer.

Can I use the phone as a timer’s flag? Yes you can. This is the primary use when Speech Timer was designed — to combine the stopwatch and the timer’s green/yellow/red cards into one easy to carry device. This should be in handy for a Toastmaster Sergeant of Arms such that there are less items to carry around.

There is this really cool feature I think you should put in the program. That’s great! Just contact us and describe the details.
