Announcing page numbers during davening


Announcing page numbers is considered an interruption which is "for the purpose of davening [prayer]", and therefore one may announce a page number between paragraphs of Psukei d'Zimra [the introductory psalms recited as part of Shacharit each morning]. For the same reason, one may announce a page number before the Maariv amidah.

It would be better, though, to post signs with the page numbers.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 1:22)

Have a great day,
