“Getting your scores to blind, partially sighted, and print-disabled musicians”
Are you a composer who sets their own scores using notation software such as Sibelius, Finale or MuseScore? Would you like to learn about ways you can make your scores more accessible to musicians with print disabilities? Then join us online on Tuesday the 21st of November from 10am-1pm for the Accessible Music Publishing Roundtable.
Hosted by the DAISY Consortium and the RNIB, this is an opportunity to learn about DAISY’s easy-to-follow guidelines for music engravers, and how these guidelines help make scores accessible to blind and partially sighted musicians. We’ll talk about:
· The barriers that print-disabled musicians encounter when trying to access scores.
· The steps that the music publishing industry can take to reduce those barriers.
· The process of transcribing scores into accessible formats and the new technology that, with your help, will make it easier for transcribers, educators, and visually impaired musicians to convert your work into braille or modified stave notation.
· The legislation that makes it possible to share “born-accessible” files with those who need them, whilst safeguarding your intellectual property.
