Music OCR fail

MacOS’s built-in text recognition in photos is not quite ready for the challenge of 17th-century music manuscripts.

This comes out as: Iss! A 9-41 14 aut

Still, the day it can read this is the day I’m out of a job!

That is a particularly lovely (neat) manuscript!

Am I close?

I also love the custos. I wish they never went away, and I fake them, occasionally, even for modern music. I find them very helpful, but that’s a discussion for another day.
