Morse code

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Morse code is a code first developed by Samuel Morse and Alfred Vail in 1836 that uses a series of dots and dashes to represent the letters of the English alphabet and digits. Morse code was a popular method of transmitting telegrams and other forms of communication before data (text) and voice communications were developed.
