Alternative to Trope Trainer for printing large-print torah portions with trope and vowels?
I sometimes help other people in my synagogue learn to read torah. While I have a tikkun, I have some vision problems and find it much easier to print a portion from Trope Trainer, which offers a large-print option. (I'm usually working with one Shabbat aliyah at a time.)
Well, I did. Unfortunately, Trope Trainer has stopped working and the company that made it has gone out of business, so it's unlikely to be fixed. I am looking for a source of easy-to-read text with vowels and trope marks (the right-hand column, in other words) that I can print at a font size of my choosing. I found a site that produces images, but not very legible ones (and images are harder to work with). Mechon Mamre has Hebrew with trope marks but it's in a two-column format and I can't see a way to cut/paste just the column I want. On Sefaria I can find the portion, select Hebrew-only, copy and paste into Pages, and increase the font size and right-justify, but some of the marks are hard to read -- I think sometimes vowels and tropes are overlapping, maybe. (Example.)
How can I print clear, large-font text of an aliyah with trope and vowels?
I'd also welcome a solution that bypasses the problem with Trope Trainer, but I assume that's a much harder problem. It's trying to check for updates, failing, and then crashing. I don't know if there's a way to disable the check for updates from outside; since the software won't open I can't look for a preference thee usual way. That might be a question for Power Users.
