Did You Know?

Morse code can provide computer input.

Morse code is used by some individuals who cannot use the standard keyboard and mouse for computer input. Morse code input allows the user to activate a switch with head, finger, or foot movements or with puffs of breath. Special software translates Morse code into commands that a computer understands and provides access to all programs, features, and standard software.
