Send your messages in Morse Code

Want extra security for your e-mail messages? Write your text then paste it in to this Morse Code Translator and voila! your text becomes unsearchable by normal means! For added security you can play the Morse Code audibly and record it to your computer. Then send the audio to your recipient! You can send them a Morse code alphabet so they can transcribe it back to the original message!

It also makes you feel a little bit like the US/Russian spies of the 50s & 60s with their special encoder machines! To bad they didn’t have internet and a handy Morse Code Translator back then!

Just let the recipient know what you’re doing or it will be pretty useless to them also!
