Sibelius Access

Sibelius Access is a set of JAWS scripts and ManuScript plug-ins which make Sibelius more accessible to visually-impaired users.

JAWS for Windows is a screen reader which gives access to a wide range of applications. It has its own scripting language which enables specialists to customise it and give greater access to applications not automatically supported.

Sibelius is a leading notation and composition package used by many well known composers and music institutions. It also has a scripting language – ManuScrypt – which can be used to automate complex or highly specialised tasks.

Sibelius Access uses both JAWS scriptsand ManuScrypt plug-ins to make Sibelius Access a practical tool for blind musicians who need to compose original works or study complex scores which would be too bulky in Braille.
