Preliminary MuseScore 4 Accessibility Tutorials
I've created some basic tutorials to help blind users get up and running with current (alpha 2) builds of MuseScore 4. There are some bugs I show here, as well as how to work around them - hopefully we'll get them fixed before the real release. So far, I've made four (originally I posted three, but there was a glitch in the audio in one, so Ive replaced and also split it into two).
The first video is to help with basic setup of the program, since it's a brand new sequence and is unfortunately probably the least accessible thing there is, so you definitely will want my play-by-play:
Next, a tutorial on how to create a new score. Here, it turns out that NVDA has some limitations compared to Narrator or Orca (I don't have a Mac to test with VoiceOver, and my JAWS license ran out some time ago), but I skip over the things that don't work with NVDA and show how to work around that:
Next, a video that gives a tour of the rest of the main window interface - the various toolbars and panels you will use:
Finally, a tutorial to get you started on entering music into the newly created score:
This doesn't even come close to showing you how to do everything there is to do with MuseScore. but it should allow you to get started, and if you're already familiar with MuseScore 3, really, most of the rest is pretty much the same.
