Last week the US government made an important decision in favor of ‘net neutrality’ and got a quick complaint back in Morse Code!

Verizon issued a press release complaining about the FCC’s decision.  The company could make a lot of money if net neutrality was abandoned but that doesn’t play well to the public.  Instead Verizon wants to present the decision as government intrusion and a ‘throw back’ to last century when phone communications where heavily regulated.

Their angle was to issue a press release entirely in Morse Code.

A neat trick and not hard to do. If you feel the urge to write in Morse Code, here’s how to do it in Word.

Get a Morse Code font.  There’s a few on the Internet, we grabbed this one.  There are many others, just search for ‘Morse Code font free’.

Install the font in Windows.  The easiest way is to right-click on the font file (usually .TTF for morse code fonts) and choose Install.

The font should now appear in Word’s font list.  If not, restart Word.

Select your text and choose the Morse Code font.

Simple as that.

This particular font adds / characters to denote upper case letters.  If that doesn’t suit you, either try another font or change the text to all lower case.
