Development of a Musical Score System Using Body-Braille
We have developed a musical score system for visually impaired people and deaf-blind people using Body-Braille. The normal musical score is very convenient for non-disabled people, but it is difficult for disabled people to use it. In order to resolve this issue, 9 micro vibrators are used to express the note and the duration time of each sound, which we call “vibration score system”. This system is very suitable not only for the study of a melody but also for disabled people’s reference while playing. We performed several experiments with a subject, and in each case, we obtained successful results.
