How does one who uses a braille display read tab?
Being a primarily graphical method of communication, it doesn’t really do much for people who cannot see.
There are two ways of thinking about this alternate method.
First, it would be interesting to create a computer script that could translate this automatically.
Alternately, this is a good project for crowdsourcing. If every guitar player or banjo player translated one song into the new notation, each person would only contribute a small amount of work, but the cumulative work completed would be enormous.
This is the concept behind One to One-Thousand by Sam Sennott. How much work could we get done if we all contributed a small amount toward the same end?
Check this out. The crowdsourcing has already begun.
