Thread: toMorse: Any text, any page, as CW with a hotkey.

I made a script that makes it easier to listen to any text from any page as morse code. Just select text and press the hotkey and the selected text will play. The settings (hotkey, WPM, volume, tone...) can be changed at the script page after you have installed it.
Listen to your favourite blogs, tweets, fanfiction as CW. Practise with any material that is written on the web.
It's called 'toMorse' and is a browser userscript.

At the moment the entire selected text segment is sent to the LCWO API which means that it's limited to about maybe 1 page of text at once and big selections like that take a while to load. I might make it able to handle really long text segments later by splitting the requested text into many segments that are requested one after another sequentially as you listen to them. Then it would start instantly even for entire chapters, long blog posts or whole books. And it would stress the servers less since it would not request the whole selection unless you listen to it all and then distributed over time instead of one big burst.

Cool stuff, I like the idea and will give it a try later.
Don't worry about stressing the server too much. If the request gets too long, it will simply refuse to serve it.

Wow ! It works like a charm in my computer.
Suse 12.2, Chrome.
Thanks a lot, Qon.
