Project: Century-Old ‘Key On Board’ Morse Code Set Auto-Translates with #RaspberryPi from AdaFruit

What a great combination of new and old technologies! The telegraph was the Internet of the 19th Century, bringing as many changes with it as we have seen with today's Internet and mobile technology.

The system allows you to type in text on the Raspberry Pi and have it translated to More Code, so you can hear what it is supposed to sound like and practice your Morse dictation and, even more importantly, you can key in your own Morse Code using the key and get immediate feedback of how you are doing by seeing a translation on the Raspberry Pi. What a great learning tool!
