Speak and Spell Emulator

Back in 2006, my mother discovered my old Texas Instruments Speak and Spell in the attic. Playing with it brought back some happy childhood memories and I was soon on the internet to see if the old thing had any monetary value after being pretty well preserved for nearly twenty years. My search was quickly diverted to a search for a good Speak and Spell emulator ... I couldn't find a good one; none had full functionality. So I decided to sit down and make one over the Memorial Day weekend of 2006.

Manual

Per request, I am posting the original Speak and Spell manual here. Most of the pages are not worth looking at, the most useful are pages 6 and 7. Speak and Spell Manual - Page 1, Speak and Spell Manual - Page 2, Speak and Spell Manual - Page 3, Speak and Spell Manual - Page 6, Speak and Spell Manual - Page 7, Speak and Spell Manual - Page 8. (I believe pages 4 and 5 were blank or had advertisements on them).

Audio Files

Per request, I am posting the original Speak and Spell audio files that I used to make this emulator.

Enjoy the emulator!
