PHOTOSCORE & NOTATEME REQUIREMENTS

        

 Windows® Versions

To use PhotoScore & NotateMe 8 for Windows your system requires the following hardware:

  • An IBM compatible Pentium III (or equivalent AMD processor) or higher PC with Windows Vista/7/8. At least 512MB is recommended.

  • Your computer should also have a reasonable amount of free hard disk space - at least 40MB and preferably rather more.

  • Adobe Reader 6.0 or later should be installed to view PhotoScore’s PDF help.

  • Sibelius users note: Although PhotoScore will work with Sibelius version 3 and higher, It is recommended that you use Sibelius 5.0 or higher (Sibelius 7.0 for the best results) as it has greatly improved PhotoScore importing capabilities.

  • A scanner (probably connected to your computer via a USB, Printer or SCSI port), and installed TWAIN or WIA driver software.

  • Recommended for NotateMe: Touch screen or tablet with stylus (e.g. Microsoft Surface Pro). Windows 8.1 if using touchscreen/stylus.

 

 Mac OS X® Versions

To use PhotoScore & NotateMe 8 for Mac OS X your system requires the following hardware:

  • An Apple Macintosh Intel with Mac OS X 10.6.7 or higher. It should have at least 512MB RAM.

  • Your computer should also have a reasonable amount of free hard disk space - at least 40MB and preferably rather more.

  • Sibelius users note: Although PhotoScore will work with Sibelius version 3 and higher, It is recommended that you use Sibelius 5.0 or higher (Sibelius 7.0 for the best results) as it has greatly improved PhotoScore importing capabilities.

  • A scanner (probably connected to your computer via a USB, Printer or SCSI port), and installed Mac OS X TWAIN driver software (it is highly recommended you visit your scanner manufacturer’s website and download the latest version – also note that classic Mac OS TWAIN drivers will not work). You may need to contact your scanner manufacturer for information on installing a suitable TWAIN driver. If a Mac OS X TWAIN driver is not available for your scanner, you will need to scan using separate software, save suitable TIFF files, and open these in PhotoScore.

  • Recommended for NotateMe: Touch screen or tablet with stylus.
