Something to think about if your teaching some kids morse code. If you have a couple kids that are interested but can't hear, a training method would be to use a software program called SUPERALDIS 3 .  It uses flashing light as the primary sending tool ( others available) The morse code can be broken down into the sets that ARRL usually uses for a class situation. (usually a 6 or 7 week set-up. ) This can keep a hearing impaired child interested in radio and morse code if they find out they can learn at the same pace as their buddies.

Some FREE morse code programs to look into.

MORSECAT 2  Beginning code training. You can set the lessons up. Word practice with text files.
WINMORSE 2  TEXT to audio WAVE files. Type in what you want and it converts it to morse code audio.
SUPERALDIS 3 ( IF YOUR OLD NAVY AND REMEMBER THE BRIDGE LIGHTS CHECK THIS OUT )  TEXT to light morse training and computer to computer.
CwCOM    Cw Communicator ( MRX software ) YOU NEED TO ALREADY KNOW MORSE FOR THIS ONE. Newsbots for receive practice. Senting practice OFF LINE. COMPUTER TO COMPUTER MORSE CODE ( ON LINE ) NO LICENSE REQUIRED

W3VPR.ORG  MORSE CODE PRACTICE  ---This can be used with MORSECAT 2 for extra practice and doing group sending and additional words. Group sending helpful for not memorizing the practice.

Almost any audio output can be detected to drive a transistor (or a relay) to key a load in sync with the code.
The particular "display" can be optimized for the user:  LED (faster than an incandescent bulb), buzzer, vibrator, etc.

Another approach is to take an old speaker with a ripped cone and glue half a ping pong ball over the center:
with enough volume driving it the user can feel the code vibrations with their fingers on the ball (and with the
added advantage that it is relatively silent to others around it.)

With any of these it will take some time to get used to it, and to find the right frequency and amplitude to
drive it that works best.
