I am using Fedora 20, with Mate desktop and zshell.

In order to practice reading Morse code, I want to play text as Morse using a program cwcpm downloaded from this site. The documentation with it suggests the test command cwtext "cheers" | /dev/audio, but this give me the error message zsh: no such file or directory: /dev/audio. Same thing for /dev/dsp

I have no trouble with getting audio when I play films, YouTube videos or BBC i-player programmes.

Please what should I do to get this program working?

I have found the answer, it is to use the built-in pulse audio package. I will edit this answer to give more details later.
