Hi All,
Last night I did test my Magic Desk 1 cartridge with my Magic Voice and
could not here any speech at all.  With Magic Desk 1, some functions eg
calculator etc are not available... but regardless, there was no speech when
typing, starting or selecting menu functions.

I tested the Magic Voice unit with BASIC, Gorf, and Wizard of Wor all of
which worked, so I'm afrain Magic Desk 1 looks to be a dud.  I re-checked
the back of the Magic Voice packaging and it says that it works with Magic
Desk 1+.  I'm not sure whether 1+ really means 2, but in any case I don't
have Magic Desk 2.....
