Re: Script for Reading Guitar Tabs


Hi George,
Thanks for posting this. I didn't know your scripts existed. I went to a mainstream high school, where I took a beginners guitar class. However, I wasn't able to take full advantage of that class as the books they were using were old and I couldn't access it. On the other hand, reading tabs itself it's already hard enough. Thus, I was many times left out from certain parts of the class. I no longer take lessons, I probably forgot the bits I learned, but I still have a guitar. I will try your scripts sometime over the weekend. Would it be alright if I contact you off list for further questions? Thanks,

Hi List,

Back in January there were several posts about how to read guitar tab
notation with JAWS. I have created a free, open source script that reads
guitar tablature notation and translates it into playing instructions that
can be read in the JAWS virtual buffer. The address is:

This site contains instructions for installing and running the script, as
well as information for developers who want to enhance or extend the script.

I created this script after losing my vision three years ago and hope
others will find it useful. Please let me know if anyone encounters
problems in working with the script.
