Additional Comments

This is the best available program for converting printed music to editable and playable notation. Neurotron only currently develop Windows and macOS versions. They have no plans to provide a Linux version.

The application version tested was 7.0.2 The latest version is Photoscore 2018.

There is a Photoscore Lite version, not tested, that is often bundled with Sibelius. It will probably also work under Wine
