Screenshot of the Morse Code Translator in action.

This is a Morse Code Translator built using JavaScript. Text is entered into the input area and instantly translated and output directly below. There is a further option to watch the text being translated in ‘real-time’, whereby each character is translated in turn. The background colour of the ‘real-time translation’ paragraph toggles between khaki and transparent as each dot or dash is output. For the purposes of this ‘real-time translation’, a Morse Code Unit has been assigned the value of 300 milliseconds. Further information on timing and translation speed is given on the translation page.
