How do I print only part of an email or Web page?Most current printers accommodate selective printing, so the following is how it is generally accomplished. There may be slight variations with your specific printer. First, using your mouse, select (highlight) the text you would like to print, then click File > Print. In the Print Range section (it may be in another location), place a check beside the word “Selection.” You can then proceed to print as you normally would and only your selected text will appear. As an alternative, you can copy your excerpt to a new document or email and print that. I am looking for a music program that can transcribe music as I play it on my clarinet. Does such a program exist?Recording analog instruments, like your clarinet, requires a somewhat sophisticated program because of the need to interpret live sounds as opposed to a series of electrical impulses, as with digital or “electronic” instruments.Sibelius (www.sibelius.com) includes AudioScore, a program that is a favorite with music teachers and composers because of its many capabilities. The bad news is that it costs approximately $600, which strikes a bit of a sour note.AudioScore ( http://tinyurl.com/MrM-AudioScore) is a stand-alone component of Sibelius but available at a lower price, approximately $250. AudioScore has a built-in metronome, allows you to create a printable score and also lets you export files for editing on other notation software products. A free demo version is available so you can try before you buy, which I would definitely recommend.At http://www.intelliscore.net/product.html is a less-expensive option that converts MP3, WAVE, AIF and AAC files to MIDI. It also converts live audio input from instruments such as your clarinet. Intelliscore is only available for Windows computers. Ensemble and Polyphonic versions are available, but check the website for features and current pricing.
