Talking Scores Beta

Talking Scores are a spoken representation of stave notation; often with recordings of the music being described. They are designed to assist print impaired musicians to use sheet music.

Producing a talking score manually can be time consuming, is often not a straightforward process and may require aspects tailored to individual musicians. This website aims to automatically produce a talking score from a MusicXML file. It will produce a representation of the score as text along with audio for the music; but you will need to use a screen reader to get the "talking" aspect of the Talking Score.

This is an open source project - currently undertaken by a very small team; working in our spare time. It is a work in progress and therefore may not always work correctly. Please see the Change Log for latest updates or contact us with questions / problems / feature requests etc.

Upload or provide a URL to a MusicXML file.


Example scores

These example scores have been produced by this website and should give a good idea of what a Talking Score is. They might not have been produced by the latest version of the code.
