[goodfeel] Re: Lime and XML-import limits

Ok thanks Bill. Btw, did you have a chance to look at the midi file I sent you. 
Albert has sent me a version of it that he worked on and the problem 
unfortunately still persisted. I replied to him with more input, and am still 
waiting for his responce. This is crucial for working on other pieces. Could 
you look at it and let me know. The piece is in g minor and the last couple 
bars contain a series of single 32nd and 64th notes. So far, Lime crumbles some 
of them into double note chords and changes the values of the notes.
Your input is much appreciated.

  As far as I know, the Windows version of Lime is the same for everybody, 
sighted or blind.  It just acts a bit differently depending on whether one has 
GOODFEEL installed or not.

  I am certainly using the one bundled with GoodFeel since I downloaded it from 
the link you provided in an earlier post. I only wanted to know if there were 
any changes incorporated in this version to make it more suitable for braille 
requirements, is there?

    Hi, Douk,

    It's always best to use the version of Lime we bundle with our GOODFEEL 
release.  Currently, it's 9.02 and the version of Lime released from Dr. 
Haken's site is 9.00.  However, in the past, we were shipping 8.50 while he had 
already released 9.00.  So 9.02 is definitely your best bet.

    The access piece is mainly provided by the JAWS-based Lime Aloud scripts.  
Lime itself is smart enough to know when GOODFEEL is around and to act 
accordingly.

    Regards,
    Bill

    Hi Bill:
    I have a question here. Is the Lime version shipped with GoodFeel modified 
in a way to facilitate working with braille and speech acccess?

      Hi, Claudio,

      The MusicXML import feature of Lime is good and quite useful but it is 
not yet close to being perfect.  In fact,although the developer of Lime 
continues to make improvements in Lime's MusicXML import facility, it will 
almost certainly never be completely comprehensive.  That is because of the 
nature of MusicXML itself.  Any program can create a MusicXML file containing 
almost an infinite variety of information.  Programs that read such files are 
free to ignore bits of information that they do not recognize.

      To put it more simply, there are many "flavors" of MusicXML and nobody's 
software will ever recognize all of them.  That being said, Lime will generally 
give you at least all the correct notes and rhythms from any MusicXML files 
that does not crash it!  Crashes are fairly rare but still too common.  
Improving Lime's MusicXML import function is a high priority for Dr. Haken, 
Lime's developer.  As he makes improvements, we will incorporate them into the 
version of Lime we ship with GOODFEEL.

      Regards,
      Bill

      Hi,
      I wanted to import an XML-file in Lime, which has been created with 
Dolet4 of Sibelius and it seems, that it doesn't work for some reasons. The 
Dolet4 of Sibelius creates a XML-file version2. What are the XML import limits 
of Lime? Importing makes Lime crash with message: "lime.exe has produced an 
error" or something like that.
      Thanks for help.
      Claudio
