Nothing else than the English edition of the Super Speak & Read and the Ready...Set...Read! game.
The picture on the left side displays the game in the closed state. The books openes by pulling at the two handles and one of the small booklets included yould be inserted. The Chatter-Book relies on the position sensitive keyboard introduced with the Touch & Tell game.
From a technical point of view the Chatter-Book is simpler than the original Speak & Spell. It makes use of the TSP50C42 Voice Synthesis Processor with two additional VSP60C19 Speech-ROM's.
