What is the point of this though, given that there are now CW mores pieces of software out there to receive and transmit it?toggle quoted message Show quoted text
I guess it might be nice to send word files over CW, but you don't really need nvda to do that. Remember a lot of Morse is abbreviations these days due to the slowness if its human read. I cannot imagine how frustrating having a screenreader outputting in Morse might be.
There are many faster digital modes if you really want to broadcast the text, as I'm sure you are aware.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA Add-on Idea: Output everything normally spoken as CW
I don't know the first thing about Python or how to build an NVDA Add-on.
So, very generally, what would be involved in developing an add-on that
echoed speech output in Morse code? The audio would need to be a nice sine
wave. Parameters like words per minute, inter-character, word, and sentence
spacing, and the frequency of the tone could all be adjustable.
Other then that, it would just spew out whatever would normally go to your
That would be a real boon to people trying to learn the code. Make me depend
on it to read an email or two, or something else of interest a day, and I'd
get faster in a hurry out of a combination of necessity and frustration.
