A visit to the blind community - based on the real needs of visually impaired
What it does
Converts the most common musical score format into speech, giving the blind access to an unprecedented variety of music.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
There are a lot of very detailed rules in music scores, making it very hard to make a comprehensive speech converter.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
- We're able to capture all the nuances in music scores
- UX of our website is specially optimized for the visually impaired; nonetheless, the UI is exquisitely designed.
- Many handy functions, customizable for the users.
What I learned
Web development, xml processing, HTTP requests, etc.
