What's the accuracy?
I realize accuracy will vary depending on a number of factors. What I am asking for is the overall accuracy. Good enough to export to Muse Score or Sibelius free of errors, or so full of errors it will require hours of editing for each line of score?
Can this app read lead sheets
I often have to read jazz lead sheets. these typically contain just the melody with the chord names written above the bar lines. Is it possible to read the chord names associated with each bar using Voiceover after this app has scanned the music?
As for me the app is really useless.
Even the text is recognized not 100 percent.
What can be said about score recognition.
Yeah I know the app for windows (about mac I don't know) photo score.
This app can recognize the score if the scan is very quality.
Though you have to edit this score to fix the score.
It is just my opinion.
