Think about a Speak & Math without the fluorescent display trimmed to German language.

Dismantling the Mathe-Fix reveals a small surprise, the printed circuit board (PCB) of the educational toy is centered around a TMS50C40 standard voice synthesizer chip. We know this technology already from the Little Maestro and its sibblings Speak & Music, La Musique Magique and Fonillo Suonaparla.
