Hi All, This is my first post to these forums and I have to confess, I'm an Apple noob to the point that I've never actually used any Apple hardware in my 42 years on the planet :-o
In fact, I'm actually a collector of hardware produced by Acorn Computers and I also collect related hardware that I used growing up and that is why I find myself here today.
One of those pieces of hardware is called a VELA or Versatile Laboratory Aid for which I'm probably the only person on the Internet that maintains any pages and content dedicated to it. I even had to write the Wikipedia page for the VELA.
So the VELA is the reason I'm here. It could be used as a stand alone device or you could connect it to pretty much any contemporary 8-bit machine. It was primarily used with the BBC Micro in schools in the UK and the BBC Micro ran some software to download data from the VELA for analysis. The primary software for the Beeb as VELAnalysis or VELA Analysis (depending on which version you are using).
VELAnalysis however was also available for the Apple ][ and IBM PC so I find myself here looking for help in locating what is more than likely to be extremely rare Apple ][ software.
The software was sold as "VELA Analysis software" in the January 1989 Schools Price List and the software was published and distributed by "Educational Electronics" in the UK.
If anyone has ever come across this software or could point me in the direction of some suitable Apple ][ software repositories that I can trawl through myself that would be great. Also, if someone could point me in the direction of getting an Apple ][ up and running under emulation (on a Win 10 machine) so if I do locate the software I can have a play with it, that would be great.
Thanks in advance for any help you could provide.
