The Morse Alphabet



Use of the Morse alphabet by Friedrich Clemens Gerke in deafblind people

The Morse alphabet is sometimes used in addition to the Lorm Alphabet (which contains only letters) for the deafblind. The characters are tapped in the palm of theres hand (tactile Morse). Other users are people with limited mobility.

The alphabet invented by Friedrich Clemens Gerke in 1848 is named for the inventor of the first writing telegraph (1837) Samuel Morse.
