- Optical music recognition (OMR) is the task of recognizing images of musical scores. In this paper, improved algorithms for the first steps of optical music recognition were developed, which facilitated bulk annotation of scanned scores for use in an interactive score display system. Creating an initial annotation by OMR and verifying by hand substantially reduced the manual effort required to process scanned scores to be used in a live performance setting.
