Be a good geek -- repair your old Speak & Spell! I have never seen one intact in my whole life time, so I had to rely on blurry pictures from the interwebs to reconstruct the cover.


I admit that the latch is quite fragile, but I had to do a compromise between elasticity and stability... Therefore I include the SCAD file so you can modify it to your printing needs.

I printed it using my Ultimaker, then gave it a small hint with a lighter (the print, not the Ultimaker) to smooth out the corners. It really snaps in nicely.

If you don't plan on using batteries you can use the "002"-version which has a much nicer mechanism, but collides with the batteries.

Thank you so much! I have a few of these poor things without covers! Well, had.

I can still hear the beeps when you get something right. I grew up with a Speak N Spell. Man this takes me back. :D


Now if I could only find my brother's Speak and Spell [and my Speak and Math] . I'm afraid you may be 30ish years too late for me.

30ish years too late? Think about THAT feeling of closure after such a long time :-) When it finally snapped in, it totally put my heart at rest :-)
