For those of us who do put notes above our lyrics, or arrange others', this program (due out soon, announcement w/in two weeks) looks really awesome:

The Music Notation App You've Been Waiting For

The software I am waiting for will read the notes and play the music, because I just can't turn dots into a tune.

Anything like that available?

There are a few programs that can scan music. SharpEye (Windows only IIRC) is a commercial program that does it. There's also a free program Audiveris (Windows/Linux). There are probably others, but these are two I have.

I've used SharpEye occasionally (I don't often have the need to scan music to score) and Audiveris I found just recently and haven't done more than a few test scans with it. They can both output MusicXML, which can be imported into score programs which will play it for you.

Like text OCR the scanning is not usually perfect and the programs include editing facilities to correct the initial reading of the score. For a simple tune it may be quicker just to type it into a score program and have that play it for you.
