I just read the article. Unfortunately, the programs discussed are
all apps for smart phones. But if you want to use a smart phone for
this purpose, you may find something you like.

I just checked. I didn't read any of the information but here is
an article about programs that convert text to Morse Code and the
other way around.
I would imagine a search such as programs convert text to Morse
Code would give more results.

You know how slow that would be? For example, a very fast CW
output would be 60 words per minute (60 WPM.) Now just imagine
doing this: to get an idea of just how slow that 'fast CW'
transmission would be. Count to your self: one one thousand
two one thousand
three one thousand and then at that pace, start speaking normal
length words such as
and so on.
See what I mean?
Besides, CW is only used now of days for station IDs within
commercial radio land services and on the ham bands. The
military has quit using it years ago.

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