Now, computer programs that will help blind read and write music
New York: Two new computer program have laid the foundation for visually impaired musicians being able to read and write music.
Lime Lighter produces a readable digital score for people having low vision, and Goodfeel, a music notes-to-Braille translator, the New York Daily News reported.
Goodfeel allows teachers and other musicians to take up any music score and transform it to Braille for their students, without having to have the knowledge of Braille.
Bill McCann, founder and president of Dancing Dots, the company behind the new technology, is a former professional jazz and classical trumpet player, and has been visually challenged since childhood and was never able to read print music.
McCann was inspired by Braille-to-text computer programs to do the same thing with notes of the music .
