Some thoughts on improving Sibelius' accessibility

Hello, I'm a blind composer. I'm using a Sibelius demo to try the accessibility functions. I have downloaded and installed the Visual Impaired scripts written by Bob Zawalich, and find Sibelius already very accessible. But since I write complicated music, I'd like to request the following features, and hope they can be included in future version of Sibelius. 1. I'd like to se Sibelius has a convenient selection function ...more »

Tablet score with intelligence

It would be great to have an app that displayed the score or parts on a tablet for playing from on a music stand. With the ability to re-paginate for different table sizes and distances, and to be able transpose as standard (like Scorch but for performance rather than printing). Selective parts playback could give you a music minus one option (particularly if you could adjust the pitch). A further feature could be to ...more »

Removing Empty Space btwn Clef & Key Signatures

In Engraving Rules I'd like to see a "Gap After Clef" setting that would affect ONLY the bars with a clef when adjusting the space between a Clef and a Key Signature. Alternatively, there is already an Initial Clef Width setting in Engraving Rules that doesn't affect ONLY the bars with a clef. (See screenshot.) A seen in the screenshot, when trying to adjust the space between a Clef and KS in the top row using the ...more »

Copy only notes - Not Lyrics

After copying and pasting notes where lyrics were with the original, I find I have to select each individual syllable on the pasted notes to delete.

 

If the copying was correct in the first place by doing something like holding down the ALT key to disown the lyrics but copy the notes that would be such a time saver.. Even save going to all the (what would be), unnecessary filter options.

Remember default audio hardware.

I have onboard sound for Skype etc., a quality audio interface for DAW work. Not, I imagine, a unique setup. If I forget to power the external interface before starting Sibelius, it defaults to the onboard sound. But next time I start Sibelius, this setting is remembered. I have to go to Audio Engine and re-choose my external interface. When I open a score that expects a different playback device to my default one, ...more »

automatic combination of 2 end-bar quaver rests in 6/8 time

In 6/8 time, if you enter two crotchets at the beginning of the bar, Sibelius should automatically combine the last two quaver rests into a crotchet rest, not leave them as two quaver rests. Except for the slowest of tempos, that bar really has a ¾ feel. I would say the same even if two crotchets are first and last in the bar.

BASS chord

Can you please add BASS chords to the chord tools? I know you can type them in with the legacy chord tool/symbols but these don't transpose automatically like the other chords and this is frustrating as I need to often quickly transpose scores
