MuseScore newsletter #4

Making music accessible to blind people

Goldberg Variations in Braille


The MuseScore project began with a simple goal: Make learning music easier for everyone. The starting point was the creation of free and open source notation software, so that anyone could create sheet music without limitations, either for themselves or others in their band, choir, orchestra or classroom.
 
But what if you needed to make sheet music available to a blind or visually impaired musician? It was specifically for them that Louis Braille extended his system to include braille musical notation. So what if we were able to extend the capabilities of MuseScore to export music as braille?
 

Support us on Kickstarter


Our research shows that this is possible but it requires quite some time on software development. That’s why we are calling for your support on Kickstarter to begin on one particular collection: Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. As a reward for your support, you may choose to receive a double CD, a printed score or a braille embossed print of Bach’s masterpiece.
