My Epson scanner scans in .jpg format and that isn't acceptable in Microsoft Word. I couldn't get it to show up. Not fond of that scanner. It is a pain.

It kind of depends what program you are using now to enlarge and print. With Microsoft Word the print preview should be quite close to what the printer gives you. Just make sure you choose the printer as your default before you start the program.

How long is the piece you are trying to enlarge?

Does anyone know of a computer program to enlarge sheet music? I'm having problems with low vision. I'm wasting a lot of paper trying to scan it. What I see in the "print preview" is often not how it actually prints out. Notes often fall off the page. :-)

I'm an old lady of 76. An 87 year-old lady I knew, began to take harp lessons. When I found out who was teaching her, I was delighted--two female Presbyterian ministers. Felt that if she could do this at 87, I could, too. This was about 5 years ago. I play mainly for hospice patients as well as patients in a charity hospital in Birmingham, AL and on occasion for blind vets who are in rehab at the Veteran's Hospital. Not a professional; never will be, but this has change my life. I left music 50 years ago. Wonderful to be back. I sang in choirs when I was young. Now I play a Celtic harp. The one I take with me to hospitals and nursing homes is small enough to sit in my lap. The high, short strings are near my shoulder. I have a larger harp that sits on the floor (every harper gets harp fever) that I use when I perform for a large group, such as a funeral or memorial for all the patients who had died during the last six months. I see a lot, so it helps keep me thankful for every day.
