This quote is from Bob Berkman, former COO of QRS piano rolls:
"The best you could do would be to scan the roll and make a MIDI file, which
you could then view in standard notation -- but it wouldn't be a very
playable score, since it would be a graph of what's on the roll in real
time, rather than the easily-read "road map" that printed sheet music is.
You'd have to edit it to get a more useable score."

Slightly OT: Has there ever been a machine that can translate piano roll to
printed notes?
