I never saw the full page paper recording format, but we had a system with paper cards with a magnetic strip at the bottom, and a word or phrase to learn printed above it.

You'd put the card into a slot on the player, and it would be gripped and slide across, the strip would be played back, while you read the word or phrase. It was maybe 5 seconds, time enough for a phrase or simple sentence.

This is great stuff all around, the 'institutional' audio fidelity and tone, reading style of the narrators, and the high quality equipment. It's a whole aesthetic that doesn't exist any longer.

It might sound like an amplified See-N-Say, but it was high quality in the 1970s, and might have 5 inch oval speakers and 5 watt amplifiers in it, enough for loud sound in a classroom.

TechMoan definitely reviewed the card-with-magnetic-stripe system (or something like it) in one of his earlier videos.

Thanks, I'll look for it, haven't thought about that device for a long time, but used it in elementary school. I think the tape was just quarter inch tape glued to the card, way less complicated, and cool, than the Sound Page.

The one from my class was something like the Bell and Howell version on this page.

The cards seemed to be very much the same, long and with the strip at the bottom like that, but the machine is not like I remember it at all. I thought my class had the powder blue, with white like 3M would use and heavy metal trim, not cheap and plastic looking like the Bell Howell, and with fewer controls.

I couldn't find the one in Techmoan's videos, but he has too many.
