Accessible music stave notation  

Music can be provided in various accessible formats. The main formats for accessible stave notation are: 

  • Modified Stave Notation
  • Braille music
  • Talking score
  • Clear print
  • Audio

Some people use a combination of these. Whilst traditionally music has been read in hardcopy, the trend is towards digital reading and listening on portable electronic devices.
