This is easier and less error-prone than copying the oops down by hand?

I remember using 300 bps. On a closed electrical circuit without acoustic
couplers, you still got line noise. Acoustic couplers put the speaker and
microphone right on top of each other and surrounded them with a muffler to
try to minimize ambient noise from the room...

Not everybody has a tape recorder, though.

And the -ac branch already does output in morse code. Try taping that and
writing a user mode interpreter for it, if you like...
