Morse code

Morse code has always been said to be difficult to learn; however, it's not. Morse code consists of 36 characters, 26 letters and 10 numbers. Punctation and computer commands are combinations of letters and numbers which are sent together as one code.

For example:
"!" is an A and an U sent together (AU)=!.
"?" is a I and a M and an I sent together as one code (ImI)=?.

If you learn the alphabet and 10 numbers, then you will be able to to do punctuation and computer commands without any trouble.

It took about a month for me to learn Morse code; yes it was hard, boring, and tiring but it was worth it. It has giving me independence in every aspect of my life and will continue to do so until the end of my life. If you are considering using Morse code as an input method whether it is through my device or another device, I urge you to keep with it even though you might feel overwhelmed and or discouraged at first. It is so worth the work and time; I can't stress this enough!

Below is the Morse code for you to take a gander at, 36 characters and punctuation codes.Morse CodeSKU: TandemMaster
