Morse Code Day
We’re celebrating Morse Code Day with arrangements of dots and dashes that stand for our favorite letters, WGBH!
This method of representing text by sound, light, or any on/off interface has been called the first digital code. With wide-ranging applications, it can be employed as an assistive technology, helping people with disabilities to communicate. It can be transmitted over great distances by radio, for example, or directly, such as by touch. What a simple, versatile aid to communication!
