Sibelius Accessibility for Screen readers

The accessibility for Screen readers needs to be improved. In the last two years, blind users could use Sibelius by utilizing the screen reader NVDA. In the last year, I encountered, that Sibelius crashes, as soon as I have NVDA loaded. I would greatly appreciate an accessibility feature on Mac OS and the screen reader "Voiceover".

 

With kind regards

Lyrics lines should be individually selectable and editable.

It's not possible to easily (with a filter) select a certain line of lyrics in a song that has repeats and thus more lines of lyrics. The programm can create up to 5 lines of lyrics under (or over) one line of notes, but it's impossible to select p.e. just the lyrics of the 2nd line. Now this can only be done by manually selecting every syllabe. This can be very frustrating for instance when you want to write out the ...more »

Soundsets for GPO 5 needed - how to?

As I recently wrote I purchased Garritan Personal Orchestra 5, hoping to have the optimum of brass sounds - to my ears, they are realy good and sound very natural and powerful /when needed). But Sibelius 7.5 does not "recognize" there is GPO5 in my computer, although I did install the lates version of Aria player and Plogue engine. So I asked at "MakeMusic" about the issue, and this is what they answered me last night ...more »

GPO5 (Garritan Personal Orchestra as VST instrument in Sib 7.5

Hi everyone. Purchased Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 (I alrady have GPO4, and Garritan J.A.B.B.) Now I find that sibelius does not "see" GPO5. It only offers me GPO4, and J.A.B.B. Now, in earlier times for the ensembles there were VSt.dll files which I had to copy and paste into the VSt folder. I did so with the most current Aria Player which I updated after installing GPO5, but that apparently is not enough. I had posted ...more »

LAYOUT defaults

I am a Sibelius user since v1 writing for big band and combos and currently on v8. From the beginning I have had to run my own templates for the groups I write for. The default settings in Layout are wasteful of space so I make my pages 10mm all around on extracted parts but then I have to go into document setup and change the 'No names' 3.8 to 0 [in a 7point page size] otherwise the margins are still not 10mm. Another ...more »
