Well, there's always ABC, about which you can find out more here:

Dancing Dots has afaIk. OCR for scores, too:
I suppose the software to scan scores also is able to scan PDF.

I have a sort-of similar question. I used to play piano in my sighted
days but mever memorised any of the music, prefering to read the
score as I played. Now I can't read a score I can't remember much of
those pieces.

I have PDF scores of a lot of piano music and wonder if there is any
way that something like Muse Score could open a PDF and I could
somehow figure out what notes are where? I'm thinking of chords with
three or more notes across both hands, my ear being unable to figure
them out by listening to a recording.

I'd love a means of converting a PDF or a midi file into a text from
which I can determine the notes ... the durations are less important
for me since I can remember how the pieces sound.

It's funny, I just asked a sighted friend for help with three notes
in Chopin's first ballade which I was struggling to remember just
this morning!

Thanks for any ideas (and no, I never learned to read Braille music)
