- (2018-09-23) Kate Hutton: Jerry (above) turned me onto this extension. I love it but I can't figure out how to clear it of the remaining text, if I don't listen all the way to the end. There are NO instructions that I can find!
- (2018-09-14) Jerry Weisskohl: Excellent Utility! The morse code (CW) produced by Morse Player is very clean with no artifacts, very easy to listen to. The ability to save the highlighted text to an MP3 file is a great feature. You can highlight the text of your email and listen to it in CW, you can highlight news articles and listen to it when driving by emailing the MP3 to your smartphone. No other CW program has this feature. Effectively, you can surf the web and turn anything into CW!
