In 2002, Mr. Smith needed practice with his Flash ActionScript programming. As he had just purchased an old Speak & Spell online, he decided to emulate that. Unfortunately, his Speak & Spell did not work. As such, Mr. Smith had to improvise. Mr. Smith has stated he has moved on from Flash programming so the Speak & Spell will not be improved. Mr. Smith had planned to do a Speak & Maths emulation but he abandoned that when he abandoned Flash.
