New York: Two new computer programs, Goodfeel and Lime Lighter will help visually impaired musicians to read and write music. The programs have been developed by Bill McCann, founder and president of Dancing Dots, the company behind the new technology.

Lime Lighter produces a readable digital score for people having low vision, while Goodfeel will allow teachers and other musicians to take up any music score and transform it to Braille for their students, without having any knowledge of Braille.

Bill McCann is a former professional jazz and classical trumpet player. He has been visually challenged since childhood and was never able to read print music. He was inspired by ‘Braille-to-text’ computer programs, to do the same thing with notes of the music.
