GSoC 2017: Accessibility

Posted 5 years ago

Hello everyone! I am Divya Raghunathan. I have been selected to work on improving the accessibility in MuseScore for visually impaired musicians as part of Google Summer of Code 2017.

The goal of the project is to improve keyboard accessibility so that visually impaired users can use MuseScore for score creation as well as score reading. Particularly, the aim is to make score editing possible through the use of keyboard only, eliminating the need for the mouse. This will allow blind users to use MuseScore for score editing and will also benefit sighted users who feel that using the keyboard is more efficient.

I just discovered Muse Score and I hope that more work gets done on making the editing features accessible for blind and visually impaired users like myself. Currently, I see that it doesn't seem possible to accessibly alter the time or key signature in a score. Changing this would be a very positive development. Hope work continues.
