I’m getting into this conversation late; however, I don’t know if this has been mentioned yet but have you tried using a temporary place marker Control windows key and k at the beginning of the block of text and then moving the cursor to the spot at the end of the block of text that you want then press the key combination JAWS key+spacebar then the letterM. JAWS will anunciate the text between current position and mark point is selected then you can proceed to copy it with control C

Hi Bill, Mike and Darran,
I do use the “Select and Copy from Virtual Cursor” option to copy text from IE to the clipboard and then paste it into a Word document. However, I have encountered a continuing problem using this option with Windows 10, JAWS 17 and IE 11:
If I press Insert v when in a web page in IE and choose the “Select and Copy from Virtual Cursor” and then press Enter on the OK button, it does work for a while. However, the next time I go to a web page and copy that page to the clipboard and paste it into a Word document, it might work or it might revert to the default option, which is “Select and Copy Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight.”
I contacted FS about this, but anything I have tried hasn’t succeeded.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Hi, Mike. You Wrote:
3. If you choose the, From Virtual Cursor option, this copies the text with formatting. If you choose the, Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight option, this will copy the text without formatting.
Actually, it is the reverse. If you choose the, From Virtual Cursor, option, it will copy plain text. If you choose the, Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight, option, it will copy full content including formatting.
