A MIDI-Sequencer which targets both terminal purists and visually impaired people





Purely character-based applications are sometimes referred to as cursed applications (originating for the library ncurses which is also used for this sequencer).

They can be run in any terminal. Furthermore, they are particularly suited for being operated over the network as terminal applications generate only little traffic. Sometimes, repositioning the mouse as required by graphical user-interfaces may not be desired, especially if the user has to switch between the PC and other equipment, frequently.

But particularly for visually impaired people, graphical user interfaces can be a barrier hard to overcome. Screen readers can help to read the text and so-called braille-displays can be used to make alphanumerical output by an application become tangible by the finger tips. However, these tools are valuable only, if the application does not make too much use of graphical symbols and different kinds of interaction with the mouse.

Cursed MIDI Sequencer is a MIDI-Sequencer which targets both terminal purists and visually impaired people. The purely character- based interface provides the kind of information needed by braille-displays and screen-readers.

But CuSE can also enable normally sighted people to run the sequencer over a network or on a low-end embedded device.
