I was just training with the MorseMachine and noticed some difficulties. When getting asked about special characters: ? = /
What is common is, all those characters are composed by Shift, at least on a German keyboard. The characters are shown when clicking "solve (Up-Arrow), and also briefly appear in the text field, but are not accepted.

Hm, would be consistent, somehow. Chromium and Chrome are more or less related, as far as I know. Tested it under Firefox ESR (machine and OS setup the same), and there it works. So seems to have something to do with Chrome/Chromium.

tried a Morsemachine session, = here on a German Keyboard working fine, Safari Version 14.0.3 (16610.4.3.1.7)
Had a problem one time with = during session must have been shift key not pressed correctly. After tht I focused shift key pressed well, no problems anymore

I have changed the code which takes the keyboard input for the MorseMachine a little and hope the problem with characters that require you to press "shift" to enter has been resolved now.
Please give it a try, thanks!
