Curator Notes

The Dictée Magique (The Magical Spelling Bee) was on CHM’s wish list and was received as a donation. The Dictée Magique is the French version of Texas Instruments’ Speak & Spell. It was released in 1983 and, like its English language counterpart, it came with separate language specific plug-in modules. A 128K ROM chip stored the built-in speech data.
