Accessibility work to begin on MuseScore

I am thrilled to report that Andrei Tuicu has been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code  and will be working on MuseScore Accessibility!  That means Google will pay Andrei for the summer to work on this project, with guidance from Marc Sabatella.  We have others who have volunteered their time to help out as well.  This is a fantastic kickstart for the project, and we hope the work will continue past the summer (albeit without Google’s financial support).

A truly accessible free and open source notation program now appears to be on the horizon.  Further work will be required to integrate Braille conversion and other tools to fulfill all the goals of the Accessible Music Notation Project, but this will surely be the cornerstone of such efforts.
