[sib-access] Re: PDF conversion.

Sandra,

Only ones I've used are Smart Score MIDI Edition Version 2.0 and SharpEye. 
Of the two I prefer SmartScore. I'm not familiar with those types of scores 
you mention, so I can't help you there.

The PDF to Music Pro sounds like another player in the game.

Have you already tried others besides SharpEye?

By now you should already know that converting music via OCR is an imperfect 
science, or otherwise technical alchemy. I've never had one come out without 
some number of errors. The biggest hurdle is in editing the resulting file 
efficiently, and Sibelius seems to be a pretty good one to use for cleanup.

Hello everyone,
How are you all doing? I was just wondering how good Sibelius 5 is at
reading from PDF files and converting them to music scores. Could it
cope with difficult files, IE, Kapustin or even Cage? Is layout a
problem?

If anyone has an opinion about the different programmes for PDF
conversion, I would be delighted to hear them. The only dedicated
programme I am aware of at present is PDF to Music Pro. Smart Score X
Pro is also very good but I have SharpEye already for the scanning. I
would like to know which programme is the best at converting and, if
possible, which one can be used in conjunction with a screen reader
most effectively.

All the best,
Sandra.
