Question ID: 755822
I'm a music historian and need a way of listening to piano scores I have in sheet music form since I can't play them myself. I'm not sure whether Sharpeye will by itself scan the sheet music and play it back via my computer speakers using RealPlayer or one of the other pieces of bundled software in my (Windows XP) computer. Expense is an issue here.

Hello jinahasa~ Thank you for your clarifications. I wanted to make sure that my completed Answer fully met your needs. I have tested Sharpeye, and yes, it will play the music for you once you've scanned it into the program. (It will play the music within the Sharpeye software, not on RealPlayer or some other software.) I'm assuming you don't already have the program, so I recommend that you download the free trial of Sharpeye, so you can test out the software and see if you like it. I'd also like to recommend a product that I use, and which is cheaper than Sharpeye: Finale Print Music. It is $99.95 (as opposed to Sharpeye's $169) and is in a family of the best music notation software available today. The scans from this software are considered more accurate than other, comparable software. Print Music will also play the resulting scan within it's own program. You'll find the program here: http://www.finalemusic.com/printmusic/default.aspx Good luck! Kriswrite RESEARCH STRATEGY: Researcher's personal knowledge Searches at Sharpeye and Finale websites
