Morse Code and Phonetic Alphabets

Morse Code and Phonetic Alphabets

Ever since I was a little girl, morse code has fascinated me and to this day, I still don’t really understand it. It is still a secret language to me that I can’t unravel, but at least now, I can translate text to code and hear it!

Java Morse Code Translator – Here you can put in morse code and listen to what the output of it would sound like. You can also translate text to morse code if you’d like. Plus, in this section, you have total control as to what it sounds like. Note: You will need Java for this to work. You’ll find instructions for that just beneath the application.

CGI Morse Code Translator – Here you will find a CGI version of the Morse Code Translator. Here, you input text, choose whether you want to hear sound when it translates and then click Submit. You’ll also find directions for this above the application.

Morse Code – Here you will find the section where you can learn morse code. The default tables are set up phonetically. For example, “A = di-dah.” You get tables of the following here as well: the alphabet, numbers, punctuation, common phrases and code meanings. You can also see the code in the dot and dash form by clicking the link near the top of the page called Dots and Dashes. These are the same tables.
For example, “A= .-.”

Phonetic Alphabets – Here you will find a listing of the more common phonetic alphabets and how they are used internationally. This is an interesting table that goes from A to Z.

Morse Code FAQ – Here you will find commonly asked questions about the Java Morse Code Translator and how you can use it offline.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey into a language that most of us know of, but are not familiar with, let alone fluent with. I know I did. I’m going to go study this information some more and see if I can get better use out of it!
