Hello Heipeng,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I don't know Python or musicxml, but I learned Braille music as a child. I haven't used it for many years now, but I wish you all the best with this project. I'm wondering, would it also allow people to access music scores on the Internet, using NVDA with a Braille display?

Hello everyone, I'm a Chinese blind musician Hu Haipeng. I'm a composer, and am planning a new project called BrailleOrch. I am working with Daniel Barich, who writes Python scripts. My goal is to make a powerful tool which can handle 95% of the braille music transcription tasks. This can make libraries for the blind work with music publishers who use Finale and Sibelius, to enhance the speed and quality of braille music transcription. Currently, all softwares of this field, both commercial and open source, are unsatisfactory, so all libraries for the blind are still using manual transcription method, which can't produce music scores quickkly. Since I have read lots of braille scores in various formats, and have composed some works for piano, orchestra etc, I have an idea to break this situation. Unfortunately, I'm not a programmer, so I have to ask for help from people all around the world. The project just began this year, and Barich has created a Github address shown below. I have written a very extensive framework of the software, describing all required functions in it. Is anyone interested in it? You don't need to learn braille music, but just Python and musicxml knowledge. Barich and I are all braille music experts. Anyone who are willing to help us can go to https://github.com/barichd/brailleorch and read my "borframework.txt" for details. Anyone who wants to help us can directly contact Daniel to join in. Our mailing list is at http://freelists.org/list/brailleorch. To send email there, just subscribe and send mail to brailleorch@.... Thank you all in advance! Regards Haipeng
