Methods of Artificial Intelligence in Blind People Education
This paper presents the idea of recognition of music symbols to help the blind people reading music scores and operating music notation. The discussion is focused on two main topics. The first topic is the concept of the computer program, which recognizes music notation and processes music information while the second is a brief presentation of music processing methods including recognition of music notation – Optical Music Recognition technology – based on artificial neural networks. The short description and comparison of effectiveness of artificial neural networks is also given.
