Help - BBO teaching table
That works. :-) What I had banged together is for the purpose of providing a student who had just played a set of boards with me at a teaching table (vs. robots) with something they could use to review the boards, with GIB at their fingertips, *externally to BBO* - a constraint ...
Online Play Video Tutorials Playlist
As the video on Undos and Alerts shows, when a player clicks the hamburger button to be able to Undo, the bad news is that "Redeal" and "Deal source" also appear. The good news is that clicking on them doesn't do anything (at a teaching table anyway). But they ...
Help - BBO teaching table
At a teaching table, when you see a hand in History > My table, you can click on "Export" and then "Handviewer link". But what do you do then? If your browser is the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge (not yet shipped, but downloadable), it has a "Collections" feature that lets you copy ...

OK, so it sounds like the boards in the virtual club games are preserved (IOW not tossed immediately after the session as they would be at a teaching or bidding table). So, after the event I should be able to log in using my client's BBO username and password ...

TWIMC, Local testing tends to support some threads on the BBO forums that suggest that the availability of voice support at teaching tables in BBO v3 is more than slightly "iffy". Voice works if I start my browser (Chromium-based Edge) and go to *via Favorites ...

Yes, it's duplex as far as I can tell in my test in my workroom here, but at 10 by 10 feet it's hard be sure what one is hearing. :-) It appears that as long as teacher and student both click on "Start speaking", both can speak at ...
