Since visual-CW is derived from 'normal' CW we use the same morse code that
was optimized for reception by ear.

Nice concepts on the FSK.

An interesting historical note is that Morse code was originally intended to be
read by eye.

It was printed onto paper strip and read off that. They then discovered that the
telegraphers learnt to decipher the sound of the relay/solanoid that did the
writing and hence they phased out the printing side of it.
