Back to NSA WORD GEAR: Franklin SCR-226
Dear NSA Member and SCRABBLE® Player:
As you know we have worked together to develop and release the newest version of the Franklin handheld device (SCR-226) based on The Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary, Third Edition, specifically at the request of National SCRABBLE Association (NSA) members. It is and remains our goal to provide an authoritative electronic product to you.
This week, we learned, thanks to the vigilant efforts of the members of the NSA who were the first purchasers of this product, that there are issues relating to some of the words. Although we have achieved 99.9% accuracy in this 103,000-word database, recognizing your expectations for this product, we are working to exceed this level of accuracy.
We want to tell you what we currently know about these issues that have come to light, how we intend to fix them and when we intend to do so.
First, please accept our apologies. A team comprised of people from NSA, Merriam-Webster and Franklin is working on the following issues:
The result will be an easy to access product, with a database that is superior to and more updated than the current existing print OSPD3.
Franklin, NSA and Merriam-Webster are all working together to identify any other issues and make changes as appropriate that will result in the authoritative product that will address fully the issues above. Therefore, the three entities are soliciting further comments from NSA members. Comments can be emailed to email@example.com
Franklin is fixing the product now, and expect to complete initial resolution of the database issues by the end of next week. However, there will be additional time required to revise the product itself and that timeframe is still to be determined.
