PhotoScore & NotateMe (PhotoScore for short) is a world-leading music score scanning and recognition software for Windows and Mac platforms. It employs the OmniScore² twin-engine recognition system, can scan printed or handwritten music scores into a computer for playback or editing.

As the first and only commercial project in the world that can be used to read handwritten scores, PhotoScore & NotateMe is able to capture almost every detail on the sheet music (not just the notes, but also the printed slurs, dynamics, lyrics, guitar tab, chord diagrams, and more), can even recognize 4- and 6- line guitar scores, as well as 1-, 2- and 3- line drum scores. In addition, it can convert PDF files into editable and playable musical notations.

PhotoScore & NotateMe can quickly and accurately recognize most sheet music, provides an intuitive sheet music editing interface, and can transpose, arrange, edit, play back, extract the parts, or print the sheet music directly. With its help, you can handwrite music on a tablet or laptop, then convert your writing into professional scores, or scan printed sheet music into other MIDI software (such as sequencers).
