If I understood correctly is the student learning to play the piano instrument? If so, this may help with learning to play the piano: Piano Lessons For The Blind - Lesson One <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J325UppLMEU>

As well, I am not visually impaired but do play some piano and like learning any other instruments, much of it is through feel and hearing over and over again – to which you already know about. Perhaps using the bump dots may help get familiar with middle C.

I noticed Maria Bohn just posted about Dancing Dots…

This would be a good place to start:

On the windows end Sonar software with Caketalking scripts for JAWS would be one way to go. The challenge with so much of the audio software is graphic interfaces that attempt to replicate the layout of old-school audio hardware.

Good afternoon – are there any technology or other resources anyone can suggest for a blind student taking a piano class? The student does not read braille. We are looking for workarounds in how she might be able to read music or any apps or other types of suggestions. This is our first time with a student taking piano – she is also taking a music production class which requires the use of equipment so if anyone has experience with this any and all tips, ideas etc appreciated.
