Are you asking how to save a webpage as HTML source?  That can be done in any web browser.  In Chrome it's under the More Tools submenu, Save page as item and in Firefox it's in the main menu, same option name as Chrome uses.

If you're asking about a utility that you can hand a URL and have it generate HTML for embedding, for instance, they definitely exist.  See:  https://www.textfixer.com/html/convert-url-to-html-link.php  for one that you can use online.  A command line version has to exist, too, but I didn't dig long enough to find that.

I misinterpreted your original question entirely.  I thought you were somehow trying to take a file of text and run some sort of converter on it to make an image, which you can't really do.

You used one of the easiest ways to take text and insert it into an image file, even if that image is strictly of the text.

Hi.  It depends upon which version of the QT framework is being used.  As far as I know, The earlier versions, up to version 4 of the framework in question is sketchy at best, when it comes to accessibility.  QT5, the latest and most up-to-date version is now much more accessible out of the box.  Cheers!

Hi:

I did figure out how to contact Magix and got the following response, actually a pretty good response.

Does anybody know about NVDA and this QT Framework? Is this something that is being addressed in NVDA at all?

It sounds to me like these guys could be interested in helping.

Greetings Chris,

Thank you for contacting us. I have discussed it with our developers, and I have also researched the NVDA and Cobra screen readers, and it is our opinion that the problem is caused by the new interface for SFAS 12. The new version uses QT framework, and from what I have found, there are many, many complaints from seeing impaired users about difficulties with screen readers interacting with QT framework. I would recommend writing the makers of the screen readers and ask them if they know of an incompatibility issue with QT framework. Of course, if there is, we would be happy to refund your purchase. If you would like, I could send you a trial version of Sound Forge Audio Studio 10...I know it's a bit older, but it uses a different framework, and should work much better with screen reading software. If you want to try that, let me know, and I'll be happy to set it up.

??e apologize to you for the inconvenience of that. I personally see it as a big problem, and I will talk with our developers about what we can do in the future to change this--it should be our goal as a company to make sure all of our programs can function properly when used with a screen reading interface.
??e thank you for your time, and we will await your response. In the meantime, have a great day!

Best regards,
Craig Dickerson

Using Braille tethered to Review on a notebook

The machine has no setting that simulates a numpad with numeric lock off. I use a Braille display. I would like to work

Re: conversion info

Sure, you can.

 

You could do this locally with an oCR package, probably, even if you have to take an extra conversion step from the .tif image file or whatever.

 

This online tool has good reviews, so it’s probably decent. Haven’t tried it, but maybe it’ll get you started.
