Hello all !

I also found it a good idea for my elder daughter, two years ago, hoping it would help her to hear the notes sing their "own names".

Someone posted the same question several years ago.
without getting an answer.

I tried with polyphone but gave up. Let's say it's not as intuitive as Musescore !!!
Now, I'm going through the same lessons with my younger daughter and I still think it would help.
Anyone to guide us through this process ?
Musescore makes graphically a difference between Do♯ and Re♭ for instance, but plays it the same way.
While building the soundfont file is there a way to make musescore sing "Do" for Do♯ an "Re" for Re♭ ?

Thanks in advance !

i guess you mean the Do-Re-Mi in C?
that is not very difficult, if you provide the Do-, Re-, Mi-, etc- .WAV-samples; you and your daughter dont want to hear me singing!

This article discusses the sung note names:ège

This section of the article covers notes with accidentals:

Note that there are two general conventions of use:
1. Movable-do, where do always means the first note in a major scale
2. Fixed-do, where do always means C

There are several systems for naming notes with accidentals in both the fixed-do and movable-do systems, and different ways of handling minor scales. To make the system workable in a Soundfont, I think I'd use fixed-do, and record different voice for sharps, flats, double sharps, and double flats (in the same way that strings can have bowed and pizzicato voices, horns can have standard and muted, etc.).

That's hilarious. I had thought about the same idea to use as a keyboard tone that says the note names (c,d,D/do, Ray, mi)...And since the keyboard has 4-5 octaves typically, I thought it would be cool if the note names for each octave had a different voice (or person).
In terms of. What to sing for sharps/ flats?
Bah .= A# or Bb
GaA= Ab or G#
GI F= F# / Gb that sounds like gif like in the word gift
