It's an excellent tool! It would be great if there were a Sagittal notation calculator with staff notation, the actual accidentals (and perhaps, the Sagispeak names), as well as playback. Such a program already exists for the Sabat JI notation system.
Glad to hear you got it working. It would be fairly straightforward for anyone with a little familiarity with Excel, to make George's spreadsheet display the accidentals as the proper strings of symbols from the Bravura font. It would require that the user install the Bravura font on their computer prior to using the spreadsheet. The conversion would only require laboriously working through the lookup tables where the ASCII symbols appear, in columns V W AA AB AF AG AK AL and replacing them with the corresponding Bravura characters. It might make sense to have two copies of the spreadsheet open side-by-side, to read one and modify the other.
For many years now it has been possible to use Manuel Op de Coul's Scala
program to display Sagittal notation on the staff, mixed or pure, for any of the four JI precision levels (as well as for EDOs). Unfortunately it doesn't do multi-Sagittal, although I'm guessing that might be fairly easy for Manuel to implement, if enough people asked him nicely. We clearly underestimated the interest in that.
Yes, an online notation calculator that didn't require the full complexity of Scala would be nice. But I'm afraid it's outside my skillset. I hope someone reading this will volunteer. I'm sorry I still haven't got onto an Apple Mac to try the SvS JI calculator.
