degarbler

The Degarbler - a program for correcting machine-read morse code. An IBM 7090 program automatically corrects garbled samples of English text. The garbles are intended to resemble those caused by Morse Code transmissions. The program has access to a vocabulary and a table of the Morse Code equivalents of the English alphabet. The correction rate on text in which 0–10% of the characters have been subjected to Morse Code garbles is about 70%. The apparent improvement in intelligibility is very marked.
