Kevin Savetz is a podcaster. He is on ANTIC The Atari 8-bit Podcast. He
has interviewed about 200 people. Kevin is trying to preserve some audio &
data tapes, and needs help from the CoCo community to test his digitized
The file format may be unique. I think the right and left audio track is
set up to play audio voice instructions on one track, and the other track is
data. The data will draw a picture using ASCII Art. A question will be
asked and the user will see the picture and respond to the question using
the computer keyboard. I think special hardware was required to decode the
tapes on a Tandy Color Computer. Kevin has recorded some episoides on the
podcast where he describes the system.
You can reach him at antic at ataripodcast.com if you want to help.

working. Atari folks have gotten the Atari version of these working.
Maybe you can put the word out in your newsletter/social media.
