The language nature of morse is discussed, showing similarities and differences with spoken language. The radio amateur club working at the Laboratory of Speech Technology for Rehabilitation was used to educate and investigate behavior of a stuttering autistic boy. Morse codes’ (phonemes’) perception accuracy was measured changing the speed of the phonemes. A hypothesis is described that the language elements have to be fixed at different speeds for quick recognition. Experiments with a non-speaking autistic girl using tablet PC are also described.
