Tabroom Tip » If you are considering holding speech events asynchronously at your tournament, Tabroom.com’s asynchronous features can help automate the judging process! Tabroom.com can support events where students have submitted links to a recording of their performance and judges have a period of time to watch and judge those recordings. If you set up your events this way, a judge can log in to Tabroom.com, see their assignments, and click video icons next to each student’s code to watch their videos in order and complete their ballots.
