School Bell is a software solution that was created in Java and can be used in schools (as the name clearly states it), in order to help teachers automate the bell ringing process, and comes packed with its own sound effects.
The perks of a portable app
This product is portable which means that the installation process is not going to be a prerequisite. Moreover, the Windows registry is not going to suffer any kind of changes, without your prior approval.
If you place the program files to a USB thumb drive, you make it possible to run School Bell on any computer you come across, by simply clicking the executable.
Tabbed and clean environment
The interface encloses a plain and simple design, as it only consists of a few tabs and several buttons. As a consequence, it becomes pretty obvious that all types of users, including those less experienced, can easily find their way around School Bell.
Input information and save it
This program comes with a tab for each school day, so that you can easily create a different schedule for each and every day. It includes nine lessons, two breaks, the end ring and a pray signal (only if needed).
In all the aforementioned entries you are required to input the hour and minute the bell should start ringing and save all your changes to the utility. Sounds are available for each type of ring, yet you should know that they cannot be changed, which can be regarded as a small drawback.
To wrap it up, School Bell is a pretty decent piece of software, built specifically for schools, as well as power and novice users. The computer’s performance is not going to be burdened at all and the response time is quite good. Out tests did not reveal any kind of errors or freezes. However, there are many other similar products which enclose many other options.
