[goodfeel] Re: piano fingerings for left hand in Lime and colouring noteheads

The text category definitely affects how GoodFeel will braille the
fingerings.
But for producing music for the sighted, you can just use the  "Lyric" text
category to place fingerings below the staff and the "Other" text category
for above the staff.

Here's the tutorial from my website about colored noteheads:

Assigning Color to Individual Noteheads in Lime

Music is generally printed in black and white. But, in the academic analysis
of music, it may become necessary to highlight certain notes by assigning
optional colors to each note?s head. This allows the Lime user to develop an
analysis, accompanied by a textual color key, for many diverse purposes, not
to mention the avant-garde applications of applying color to specific notes.

Here is a hot-key tutorial (developed mostly for blind Lime users) that may
help you with these kinds of projects.

1.      The default color in Lime for all noteheads is black. To revert to this
basic color, simply type the sequence: ALT, N, C, SPACE
2.      To change to another color, use this sequence: ALT, N, C, RIGHT-ARROW,
SPACE. (Remember to tap the SPACE-BAR, not the ENTER key.) Here are the
number of times you need to tap the RIGHT-ARROW to get a specific color:
1 red
2 green
3 blue
4 yellow (very hard to read on paper)
5 magenta
6 aquamarine
7 perwinkle (a muted purplish blue)
8 salmon (a muted pink ? hard to read on paper)
9 lime green (very hard to read)
10 purple

The rest of the colors in this palette are hard to read on paper and should
not be used. Sighted assistance is needed to develop extended color palettes
in Lime.

Joel,

Does the positioning of fingerings make a difference to the Braille file
that Goodfeel will create? If so, I guess it doesn't matter but I'm sorry I
can't answer your question.
Cheers, james

Subject: [goodfeel] piano fingerings for left hand in Lime and colouring
noteheads

Hello all...



I'm transcribing a pop tune for one of my sighted students:



I'm writing in fingerings in Lime and have been able to write fingerings
above the treble staff of a piano part.  When I try to enter fingerings
below the bass piano part, the fingering defaults to a position above the
bass piano part.



Does anyone know what text category I can use to assign fingerings below the
bass piano part (left hand)?



Also...



I'm trying to figure out how to assign colours to specific notes in Lime.
The colour buttons are not labeled.  Does anyone know how to assign labels
to these buttons by using JAWS?  The graphics labeler won't work for this
sort of thing.



Thanks in advance...



Joël
