All Morse software, such as G4FON, send pulses to your computer's speakers. Try substituting a 2-watt LED in place of the speaker. Home Depot sells them for flashlights. So does Radio Shack.

Sorry, but I have to ask. Why do you want to do this?

Morse Academy, which is available at http://www.speroni.com/AH0A.html has the ability to send visually. It sometimes takes a little bit of tinkering to get it to work in Windows XP, but in some respects, I like it a little better than G4FON. The option to change to visual signaling is under Options/Tone Generator if you're able to get the program working. I've also heard of programs that will flash an LED on the keyboard, but I cant think of the name of the software now.

The Navy, alas, no longer has "Signalmen (SM)".  That job is now relegated to the Quartermasters (QM).  In the same vein, the Navy no longer has "Radiomen (RM)".  They are now "Information Systems Technicians (IT)".

Try running Morse Academy from inside of the program called DosBox ( http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1 ) Dosbox let me run Morse Academy on Windows 2000 and even does a good job with the audio.

As a VE I used to advocate to the people who said they just couldn't "hear" CW that they try learning flashing light!  I would still recommend this as a learning method for those with hearing problems.
