  • After Android, iOS devices to get Gboard's Morse code option

Born with cerebral palsy, Finlayson's experience with the Morse code communicator led her to a partnership with Google on bringing Morse code to Gboard. Google has been very intentional about that and one of the things that they developed is to have Morse Code available in their Gboard virtual keyboard.

In order to use the new keyboard, ensure that you're running version 1.29.0 of Gboard for iOS.

Morse code is a common communication system that uses dots and dashes, enabling individuals to rapidly convey information both visually and audibly.

If you're interested in using Morse code on Gboard be sure to check out this resource page which tells you how to learn Morse, connect an external switch, and much more. Today, we're rolling out Morse code on Gboard for iOS and improvements to Morse code on Gboard for Android.

Earlier this year, we partnered with developer Tania Finlayson, an expert in Morse code assistive technology, to make Morse code more accessible.

Google just released a new set of tools for Morse Code, including a game that can help you learn the method. You can anytime switch to the traditional QWERTY keyboard if you don't want to use the alternative communication way. The Morse code setting is only available for English (U.S.) for the time being and can be selected as one of the options in the section where you add keyboards. You can also hear sound feed as you enter Morse code on your screen by turning on the Sound on keypress option. In her blog post on the matter, she explains how learning Morse Code changed her life, and how she's developed multiple ways to integrate Morse Code into other aspects of her life.
