When starting Musescore 4, it's very slow to display the interface. And when using NVDA, even by pressing an arrow key, it immediately crashes and aexits. Using a Chinese screen reader Sunshine doesn't have this problem, but since Sunshine doesn't read Musescore (it's Sunshine's limitation), I have to stay at Musescore 3.5.


Comments

To be clear, though - the nightly development builds from master are not anything remotely close to what MuseScore 4 will eventually be. They are purely experimental builds made available for testing but the new MuseScore 4 features have only barely begun to be implemented. We are probably a very long way from these actually being usable.
