Lyrics and text is turned off by default

PlayScore on iOS and Windows can recognise text such as

  • Lyrics and other text in the score (for MusicXML export)
  • Multi-measure rests
  • D.S, D.C, Coda, fine etc (iOS only)

For all these features PlayScore needs Optical Character Recognition (OCR), the ability to read words and numbers.  When you first install PlayScore OCR is turned off.  To turn OCR on, tap the cogwheel and enable Lyrics and text.

Lyrics and text is a subscription-only feature and not available yet on Android.

Auto-transpose is turned off by default
