Sagittal accidentals are available in MuseScore via the Bravura font which implements the SMuFL standard. They can be accessed by opening the Master Palette and finding them in the Symbols section at the end.


Sagittal notation is available in Scala.


Because Dorico is built by Steinberg Media, the same company that maintains the SMuFL standard, it should support Sagittal.
