I have Magic Desk as a physical cart and it is also readily available in
softform on the net....  I can email the disk image directly to those
====>>>       1 ----------------  DEL
====>>>       2 MAGIC DESK I      PRG
====>>>      97 MAGIC DESK- MAIN  PRG
====>>>      17 MAGIC DESK- 8000  PRG
====>>>      17 MAGIC DESK- C000  PRG
====>>>       1 ----------------  DEL

I have never tried Magic Voice with Magic Desk so don't know what to expect
speech wise.... I don't know if the soft form will work given the Gorf

The Cart itself is a multi-ROM, there are four ROMS in it plus decode logic
so its not a simple case of EPROM burning  :(

Unfortunately never seen the "Bee" progs or the "Magic Talking Book" which
is supposed to be the other title that existed!
