Table Caller

Table Caller is compatible with Snow Leopard (10.6) and higher.

Brief Description:
When you have large gatherings and want to announce which table of people can line up (for food, etc.) without confusion, you might want to use Table Caller. Table Caller can call tables in order or at random. Table Caller supports up to ninety-nine tables. The layout is suitable for a display resolution of 1366 x 768 and will work well with higher display resolutions. Table Caller is freeware.


When you launch Table Caller, you see a small (Control Panel) window with a few controls. Use the Up/Down control to set the number of tables. Choose the order to be called (In Order or at Random) from the menu bar. If you want the announcement to be heard as well as seen, check the Sound checkbox.


When you click the Start button, a large banner (Announcement Window) will appear with the Table number to be lined up. When it is time to call up the next table, the Host presses Command-Option. After all tables have been called, pressing Command-Option closes the app. Alternatively, the Host can click the red close button at the top left of the Control Panel to close the app at any time.

The Command-Option shortcut is disabled for one second after its use to prevent accidental multiple announcements.

The above announcement fills the width of a display with a display resolution of 1366 x 768. If you have a higher display resolution, you can drag the windows where you want (center the Announcement Window for example) and their positions will be saved along with Control Panel and menu bar settings between sessions.
