    I've been searching for a good morse trainer. There is a plethora of them out there, however most are of the copying variety. However, I came across "morse machine" that is almost what I need.

    My problem is that it throws new characters at you way too fast and doesn't help me much. There is no way to adjust when new characters are added, so it ends up throwing me off.

    Anyone know of a better system that has a few more adjustments?

    I just thought of it. I need the old DOS version of "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing" where the letters and words fall down the screen and you have to correctly type them out before they get to the bottom of the screen. Except it sends it in code. LOL.

    I laugh but I'm close to 50 WPM on a keyboard, I guess Mavis gets some credit there.

    Grab a copy of Teach4. It is "almost" like the space invaders typing game. it will slow down as you start to stumble on new characters and speed back up as you "get" them.

    I really enjoyed using it.
