i would like to have 2 related features to make it easier to direct a game. These both involve an audible alarm (beep etc.) to get TD's attention. Why? Some tournaments, especially small ones, require little TD action. As a TD, it is tempting to do other things (e.g., make lunch) with frequent glances at the TD screen. Also, some TD calls (should a robot generated score for an unfinished board be changed?) can take a few minutes, during which another problem might go unnoticed. In such cases, a BEEP would get TD attention. The 2 alarm types i would like are:

1) for any director call
2) for a player dropout (ideally only if for longer than xx seconds)

Ideally, these could dynamically be enabled / disabled via a command on the TD menu.

1) There is a sound for a director call - although at least for me it is too bland and familiar: my long term request is a voice bellowing "DIRECTOOOR!" :)

2) From what I gather here, ACBL directors also get a sound for a player dropout
