This is an interesting artifact from the period. This software was purchased from the "Atari Program Exchange" - a very unique method of software distribution that Atari experimented with during the early 1980s. Atari would encourage their users to produce software and the would sell it to other users through a catalogue. Programmers were paid royalties for their work. This software is presumably some sort of educational spelling program.
