[sib-access] Re: Sibelius 5 scripts

Hello Barbie,

Thanks for the update on the Sibelius sales position vis-a-vis offering 
downgrades to 5.25 for legitimate blind Sibelius 6 owners. This is news to 
me.

Dave

I believe it is possible to download this immediately.  It does say on the
website that it does not work with the student version of Sibelius.  I don't
have this yet as I cannot afford Sibelius 5.  I joined the email list to see
what people were saying about it and see what kind of things worked and
didn't work.  It sounds like it does work, but like anything new will take
patience and time to learn.

It seems to be a download so as long as you already have Sibelius 5.2.5 and
JAWS you shouldn't have to wait.  Purchasing Sibelius 5 is a little tricky
as 6 is the latest version.  The list is giving indications that access for
6 is near but not yet available.

EBay or your local music store would be a good place to start.  I emailed
the list server and asked how to get 5 and was told to call Sibelius and
tell them I was a visually impaired user who planned to use sib-access and
they would send me a copy of 5.  I'd have to purchase 6, but they would send
me a disc with 5 on it.  This way when sib-access is available for 6 I'd
already have it.   but the sales person on the phone said "no can do".
After that I decided to spend my money on sonar and cake talking instead.
It isn't meant for the same things but I have enjoyed it.  Eventually I
would love to use this program myself.

I hope this was helpful.

Barbie
