SightRead For the Partially Sighted Musician

                   

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.

Enlarged Sheet Music

Seen here with a full sized piano keyboard it is clear to see that with the large 24 inch monitor on the VI24 touch screen, sheet music can be greatly enlarged to enhance readability.

Power Music provides the flexibility to adapt the size of the notation to suit the individual musician's requirements. It is ideally suited to display Modified Stave Notation as used by the RNIB.

Optimised Colour Combinations

The ability to display notation in different contrasting  colours on the  VI24 enables the Musician to select suitable colours which can greatly improve the music's  clarity and ease of reading.

Power Music allows any combination of Foreground and Background Colour which the partially sighted musician finds best for their own needs.

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.
