This paper is on a research in progress, trying to solve the problem of how to assist visually impaired users in Sri Lanka to visualize and train Eastern music scores (notations) in a way that satisfies their music needs. Several researches have been done in Western music context to address this issue but fewer researches have been done in Eastern music context in this area. In this study, audio format was identified as the most feasible and effective readable format to read music notations for visually impaired. Therefore the research study has been steered to convert visual music notations (of Eastern music in Sri Lanka) into an audio output which gives visually impaired user a real feeling of reading visual notations as it is and assists to train on them. This can be further extended as a tool which assists visually impaired users in music score generation and music composition.
