After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
Prosign (and abbreviation) meanings are not given.
I'm adding them for myself, but it should have them by default.
Also that -...- thing mentioned before (- and = are both represented as =)
I found an error, though: it seems that "equals =" and "hyphen -" are both being represented (in sound and in visuals) as -...- but hyphen should be -....-
The use of the four cards formats and the use of CSS, as opposed to GIFs, is just what learning Morse code needs.
The 'is almost' part in the title is dividing the cards into sub decks, at first, of numbers, letters, punctuation and prosigns. I believe this will make learning initially faster. But, once an individual's confidence in knowing the characters codes is sufficient the cards should be moved to the parent deck. Number and Letters first and when sufficient confidence is gained add punctuation until greater confidence results then add the prosigns to the parent deck. A part of learning is not just the presentation (format, sequence and styling) of information but also in the order of presentation in order to improve discernment first between types of information then between individuals pieces of information.
I have no doubt that the deck as it is can help people to learn Morse code. I only a cert that splitting up the decks 'may' decrease overall learning time
I have some localized changes. Once I've validated I'll try to make them available.
1. converted .wav to .mp3
2. separate left and right parenthesis
3. audio at 25 wpm rather then 30 wpm
4. augmented the pro-signs to say what they mean
The flashing visuals are not animated gifs but rather tricky css
I think this one is currently the best deck to learn to **TRANSLATE** morse : morse is usually heard or seen, not read, so i think this is perfectly reasonnable to focus on learning "text vs non-text"
Useful prosign are given (copythis, wait, understood, break, ok, all received, new paragraph, newline, closing, end of contact), but i think it would be better if the "text" in the card could display its meaning (see above) instead of just saying "prosign"
Maybe you could tweak it a little for newcomers :
- remove the DO (shift to wabun), merge both BT and =, add + to the text of AR, add & to the text of AS
- use 20WPM by default **OR** add visual text (-.-.-) to help understand the visual/audio pattern (it's going really fast and quite hard to understand at 30WPM imho, especially on a portable device which might skip rendering frames)
Thanks a bunch
The sound works for me on Mac OS X and Ankidroid. The .gifs appeared to just be static black images but they're actually just not on a loop. Possibly better for learning.
