Atari Speed Reading CX4126 (C) 1981 Atari, Inc. ; please use with BASIC cartridge.#

Introduction#

Atari Speed Reading is not just another Voice & Data program from Atari. It is the(!) template how a Voice & Data cassette has to be digitized. Peter Dell and Stefan Meyer had made a masterpiece here, showing us, how this can be done. First, we have a marvelous recording with the best parameters, which made the nowadays standard for recording Atari cassettes. Second, we have a manual in a top condition to quickly and easy find entries for the users and third, we have here an incredible good separation of the Voice & Data layers for further needs.

Separation of Voice & Data#

After recording a cassette in the WAV-format, we can see the following picture in a program called Audacity:

The voice layer is at the top, the data layer at the bottom. With Audacity it is possible to separate the 2 layers. For Atari users with a Mac, this is important, because the emulator Atari800MacX in version 4.6.0 from Mark Grebe is not ready to read in WAV-files. Mark will take a look at that, when he has finished his PhD. Up to that time the Mac users must have that separation in order to use Voice & Data cassettes.
