What OMR is
Audiveris is not a mouse but a MUSIC program. It is comparable to a text-to-speech program but then for written music. It converts a pdf of sheet music with Tesseract OCR into MusicXML, a format which can be recognized by MuseScore. Musescore then can play the sheet music with a virtual instrument (banjo, guitar, piano etc).
