An apparatus, or a process, for communicating intelligence rapidly between distant points, especially by means of preconcerted visible or audible signals representing words or ideas, or by means of words and signs, transmitted by electrical action.
A system for transmitting messages using an electrical circuit running through a wire. The message is sent by using a code of dots and dashes representing each letter and digit. The telegraph operators opened and closed the circuit to create the pattern of dots (short interruptions of current) and dashes (longer intervals) sent through the wire. At the receiving end an electromagnet operated a sounder and the operator decoded the pattern of dots and dashes as he listened. Different versions of the code were developed in Europe and North America.
