Speech Timer for Yosemite

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please allow us to present our latest iteration of Speech Timer. Speech Timer is our series of Toastmasters timekeeping software for Android, iOS, and OS X. This time we bring the refreshed look of Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” into Speech Timer version 2.1 and brings complete Yosemite compatibility while still supporting Mavericks, the previous release of OS X.


We’ve also changed the “Flag” button into a clearer, more friendlier “Signal” button. This works in conjunction with the Timer Display window that you use alongside an overhead projection to show the current orator the time elapsed as well as signal him before he overtimes.

No animals were harmed in preparation of this release. However many bugs were squashed. Get Speech Timer now from the Mac App Store.

    Not sure why there’s not an option to have the whole screen remain green, orange or red. Options are good and not hard to implement. It is the way most TM timers work????

    Because that will interfere with the status board.

    Given the explanation, then you might as well go with solid colours for the short duration, rather than the weak transparent colour. I suspect that the transparent colours were chosen so that the status board is still visible. It feels like a loose/loose situation the way it is at present. I feel customers love options so they can decide, as long as they are not overwhelmed by too many bells and whistles.
