Abel, for Windows PCs, is the most popular change ringing simulator in the world, for both home and tower use.
When you're using Abel, you will find that the screen is broadly split into three, with a menu bar and a toolbar above the three panes.
Abel provides a range of bell pictures: you can change to different ones via the Screen/Print Options.
The pictures you see when you've just installed Abel flip between handstroke and backstroke positions exactly as Abel rings each bell; if you change to one of the "moving" sets of pictures provided, you will get smoothly moving pictures of ropes or handbells, with the bell sounding at an appropriate point in the movement.
