HotPaw Morse Words is a aid to learning Morse Code. Audio learning can be a great brain exercise. This app can help you learn the sound of entire words in Morse Code. The app is a test generator which randomly picks from 250 very common English words and sends them in International Morse Code audio through your iPhone speaker or headset. The WPM (words per minute) speed can be easily set up to 100 WPM. You can also separately set the dot speed (for Farnsworth method code), and customize the tone frequency.

Hit "Start" to start sending random Morse code text. You can choose "Show", to see the words displayed as they are sent to the speaker. This is helpful when first learning. After you are familiar with the sound of the words, you can "Hide" the display of the words sent, and attempt to copy them down on paper as your hear them. Then you can later show them in order to check how many words you copied correctly.

Optionally you can paste a custom word list, from 5 to 500 words in length, using the Settings view.

Bobert A. ,

Great program, but... does suffer from a few defects: (1) Pasting custom word list is clunky—seems like one must get “just the right sequence” of commands (pasting and changing between Settings and normal screens)—haven’t figured out the sequence that works yet, but I just keep tryin different things until it works. It is NOT a straightforward pasting operation. Also, (2) the random number generator that is used for randomizing a list of “words,” does not have a uniform distribution. It appears to lop-off the two ends of the distribution. To get all words in my custom, pasted list to play (randomly), I must actually add two dummy words (or characters) to the start and the end of my list, since these will never play. But they will allow the actual, intended “start” and “end” characters to be selected, for play......weird......check the RNG you are using, Developer(s).

Exactly What I Needed

After you learn the individual letters and digits, this is a great next step. There are many apps that send sentences or RSS headlines, but those aren't good for learning CW because you anticipate the next word. With random words, you can't guess the next word, so you really have to *recognize* the current word.

The only thing I really wish the author would add is the option of adding the next 500 common words.

Very nicely done.

For practicing higher speeds this program is perfect. Gives you random words so you cannot anticipate what’s coming, but have to hear it and decode it. Great for learning to head copy.
