Morse code was one of the common translation used for transmitting letters and numbers and they could be easily decoded at the remote end by a morse decoder i.e. a trained human operator. The operator would listen to the clicks of at the other end and decode the message. Eventually, a constant –length coded representation became the concept used for storing, retrieving and transmitting of text/information by computer in the modern era.
