Dan Ringwalt Roger Dannenberg Improved Methods for Optical Music Recognition

Optical music recognition (OMR) is the problem of converting scanned music scores into a symbolic format such as MIDI. Basic information about the score is necessary for later steps, but is useful in itself to support many computer music applications. We developed new and improved methods to extract this information, which are used in a live score display application. Furthermore, we developed methods to estimate the quality of a scan, which can be used to select the highest-quality version of a score to use for OMR.
