Your history of the World Book Tutor Vision saga is quite thorough and accurate! As one of the programmers of the software for the system (I wrote 5 or 6 of them as I recall), your recap brought back tons of memories!

I do also recall that at about the same time as the titles were being completed, and the system was about to launch, a new kids-oriented learning game system hit the stores - one that was superior in most ways - a system that was called Socrates.

The sound capabilities of the Socrates were inferior (at least as was demonstrated by the few examples I heard), but the system did in fact beat the Tutor Vision to market. And it appeared to have better graphics, and superior processing power.

I''m sure that Dave Warhol and/or Keith Robinson would have more information should you care to contact them.
