A redesigned interface that's easier to navigate

SmartScore has always had many powerful tools in its toolbox. They're still there, just easier to get to. Toolbars and buttons are neatly organized by function. A new Symbols Selector pop-up keeps everything tidy and neatly at hand. It's like a kitchen designed by Gordon Ramsay.

More powerful OCR

Lyrics and text are now recognized with 99+% accuracy. Our Prodigy Engine®, with machine intelligence technology, keeps getting smarter and will continue to do so as we release free maintenance updates in the future.
