iFeelPixel Morse : Converting text to Morse...

Online Morse Code Encoder/Decoder by Dennis Schmidt
Although you could also use it to encrypt small texts. If you do so, remember that morse code is an international standard and that makes this encryption method not really secure
Usage: Enter the text or morse code into the corresponding (upper) box.
The correct translation should appear in real time in the box below. If not, click the button "transform".

Spaces between the words in morse code are symbolized with " & ".
The letters in morse code are separated with normal spaces.

10 ms is the better choice for realistic impressions of haptic forces...Thanks for the tip, Stuart!
Be cautious! below 55 ms, strange things can happen because of visual basic timer issue)
