Did you try the temporary placemarker, control+Windows+k then at the end insert+space bar then m, then control+c to copy?
No idea if that would work.

Subject: Problem selecting text from the screen, OCR won't work?
I have a report opened to the display in the accounting program. It opens in another window.
I want to select the text to paste it in word.
I can read the report with the invisible curser but not with the mouse, or pc curser.
I don’t know if or how the invisible curser selects text. I couldn’t get anything to paste into word.
I then thought ok I’ll try OCR but the command for screen only says “ Started, finished, JAWS”
I get the same with trying the window to OCR. There is nothing to read.
What could I be doing wrong?
Does OCR care which curser is active?
Yes, I know I could run this report as a pdf and save it somewhere and then open it in Adobi reader to select the text but I thought just steeling it from the screen would be quicker and less messy.
