Opening BMML files

Did your computer fail to open a BMML file? We explain what BMML files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your BMML files.

What is a BMML file?

The .bmml file extension is used for a source code and script file format that was developed to provide blind users with access to musical notation data. Also known as Braille Music Markup Language files, these BMML files store musical notation details in Braille characters and symbols. Through the Braille Music Reader, which was developed by Contrapunctus, these .bmml files can be viewed through the use of Braille devices like refreshable Braille display monitors.Braille printing devices can also be used to print out these BMML files through the Braille viewer applications that are bundled with the Braille printers. Third party Braille software products that can support the .bmml file format may also be used to print out these BMML files.The Braille Music Reader software can be used to open and view the content of these .bmml files. Other Braille programs can be used to edit the content of these BMML files.

Software that will open, convert or fix BMML files

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
