This sounds like something I'll hobby around with.  Been wanting to do something with this for years, and now After finding your site, you got me on a roll.  lol  I'm heading out of state for a little bit.  Have too head back east for some DC work.  But I'm be back home in December.  And I'll Do some encoding, happily. 

I was afraid to tell you I already tested it on the SWF file with a SWF player.  I just sort of reconstructed your site to play with it offline.   (basically I didn't want to be pulling it from your site each time eating up your bandwidth.  But I wanted to make sure you got credit for it.  I to do a little programing.  so I respect the shareware concept.  I'll try to get something out to you ASAP. 

LOL  here I am at 4:01 am I should be in bed and I found myself a new obsession.  lol  OHHH  nostalgia...

I realized I didn't have the gif files in there so I added them to that download. If you want the fixed one, just re-download it, and it will have the gif files too. 

Thanks.  And hey.  I'm loving it already.  lol

These are great.  I Played each of them today.  What a blast from the past.  lol  I noticed that the ScienceFiction tape track 1 is messed up.  I can re-record that if you want.  I have that 8-track.   it will serve as a test of my doing it.  lol  This looks really interesting.  I may even make a few new one for my kids if I can get the knack of it.  doesn't look too hard.  Well, least with the tools we have today I mean. 

What you asking for donation on this one?  I'd love to help support it. 

Looks like the entire thing is about, what 100mb?  That's not too bad at all...  Considering.  The all temporary internet files Zipped up to about 86Mb.  Each 8-track zipped is around 8 - 10 mb.   If that is the case I can Start encoding more tapes for you that I have and just zip them up in your format, for e-mail to you.  What do you think? 

Oh and BTW thanks for the link in the other thread to the resource with the rest of the scanned booklets.  Glad I didn't waste too much time digging around for the ones I have, cause they were already scanned...

I loved your site so much, I wanted to add a few books and tape.  do you send them back after encoding them?  I'm just wondering.  I kept it all these years.  I always figured my kids would get a kick out of it.  as a toy their dad used to play with.  But it was really cool to see it live and interactive online.  lol 

I scanned the General information WorkBook for the original tape.  It too has some clean up to do though.  Let me know where to e-mail it to, or I may be able to just upload it to my server and let you link from that.

I have the monsters. myths and legends book in good shape, and the talking calculator booklet in good shape also.

Other 8-tracks I have:
Science fiction
U.S. Presedents & American History
Super Heroes and Comic books Cavalcade
Challenges of General Science

And these ones had the little button insert to change what was desplayed too
True False Yes no

Bet your life
Amazing Sports Feats
50s and 60s nostalgia
Tid Bits and funny facts
Science Fiction II

And last is the Wonders of the World
Accurate Not True False

I'm willing to scan the books I have (3) and encode the tapes if I can figure out how. 
[Edit]  found instruction.  ty...
