Maybe someone would repair it, though I doubt it. You might do better asking to buy one on a blind buy and sell list.

Gene,

You're absolutely right. A device like the Language Master 6000 can't
compare with any of today's online dictionaries and I'm sure that there
are equivalents to nearly all of its games, either on Windows or on iOS.
However, the device has a lot of sentimental value to me and I'm willing
to pay to have it back in good working order. This also may not be
possible but I'd at least like to try.

Hi. I have a very old Franklin Language Master which has a cracked
screen and crackling speakers that I'd like to get repaired, assuming
that a repair of this product is even possible in 2020. Franklin's Web
site reports that it is under construction and then redirects to Amazon.
Does anyone have current contact info for Franklin Electronic
Publishers, assuming that this division is even still operational?

Mine works great with laptop and JAWS. Turn off the number input.

Re: Does iPhone SE 2020 record in stereo from built-in mics?

Try an app called Dolby On. That app seems to record in stereo.

Thanks John.  That is unfortunate.  It’s a shame that you can’t record stereo sound with the built-in mics without video.

I know that the Voice Memos app only records in monaural sound, but is there an app that will take advantage of the phone’s mics to record in stereo?  I seem to get mixed stories from Google searches.  Thanks for your thoughts.

You may have to get specific brand and model recommendations. Also, is yours a USB or some other kind of connection? From comments I've seen on one or two lists in the past, many don't work.
