Speak, Spell, Language Training?

An instructive article in Penn Language Lab on the 'Speak and Spell'  toy reminded me of using as it model for training.   Could still see this as possible.    First produced by Texas Instruments in 1978.   A new version is coming out, with some perhaps limiting aspects;

" ...  Where the new Speak & Spell differs from the original—and this could be a deal-breaker for some nostalgia-seekers—is its voice. Instead of using a synthesizer that generates spoken words from a bunch of coded instructions, Basic Fun!’s Speak & Spell uses voice recordings that have been processed to sound like they’re being generated by a computer. The monotonous, stilted delivery sounds very close to the original version, but it’s definitely different. ... "    From Gizmodo.  

No mention of assistants in this article, but still there is a skill there for training.   demo:
