The Franklin Wordmaster


Bruce Pyne


In my August 1988 Word Ways article, I described an electronic speller, the Spelling Ace, issued by Franklin Computer of Pennsauken. New Jersey for less than $60. During the summer of 1988, Franklin began retailing a new computer which is called Wordmaster. It can do everything their first model can -- and much more. It is the same size and shape as the Spelling Ace, has a typewriter keyboard, and is powered by four AAA batteries, but that's where the similarities end.
