  • The app has been completely updated to meet Google's requirements, ensuring compatibility with the latest Android versions.
  • Enhanced the music drawing and rendering library to display the print music sheet. This feature is especially useful for both low-vision and sighted users.
  • Upgraded to latest Audiveris optical music recognition library to support converting music image-based file into MusicXML format.

    To use this feature, click on the "More Options" button in the top right corner -> select "Tools" -> choose "Convert PDF sheet" and then select the image file of the music score. The application will perform recognition and conversion from the Sao Mai server, requiring an internet connection.
  • Utilized the latest SM online Braille music translation library.

    To use: open a music score -> double-tap on the score to open the context menu -> and choose "Translate". The application will need an internet connection to translate the music score into Braille. After the translation is complete, you can read the result directly or choose to save or share it.

    To customize Braille translation settings: open the "More Options" button in the top right corner and select "Braille Settings".
