The new range of electronic music stands from SightRead is finding new friends amongst partially sighted musicians, students and their teachers.
With large, clear sensitive new touch-screens, enlarged sheet music can now be viewed by partially sighted musicians more easily than ever thought possible.
The pre-installed PowerMusic software with its ability to make the notes more legible by changing size or by using different display colours is immensely powerful. It has been developed to incorporate many features suggested to us by partially sighted musicans over the many years we have been working in this field.

MSN enlarges the sheet music generally and makes a score more consistent, but it also alters the proportions involved. For example, the gaps between notes from left to right are not enlarged as much as the vertical gaps between the stave lines.
