GOODFEEL Braille Music Translator - Standard Package
Are you a blind singer or instrumentalist who needs to have braille scores quickly? Do you want to print your musical ideas out in standard staff notation for sighted people to read? Are you an educator or rehabilitation professional serving blind musicians who has no time to learn to be a braille music transcriber? GOODFEEL® can help you. GOODFEEL® automatically converts computer files of print scores to the equivalent braille music. These are the same files used to print the score for sighted players to read. To prepare and transcribe these files with the GOODFEEL® suite, you do not need to know how to read braille music. However, you should know how to read print music notation and how to use a Windows PC.
